“One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.”

― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species

 

A rare first German edition of Charles Darwin’s “Insectivorous Plants”. This book was a study of Darwin’s experiments and observations on carnivorous plants, paying special attention to the conditions in which they lived. His most important finding was that these insect-eating plants only reacted to the movements of animals, not the prodding of a researcher. He also discovered many of the different ways these plants catch their prey, such as sticky substances, or hinged mouth-like leaves.
