Write The First Customer Review

French zoologist Georges Cuvier (1769-1832) is mostly remembered as being on the losing side of two great scientific debates, evolution and catastrophism. But his careful research on fossils helped give credibility to geology and paleontology. This volume translates Cuvier's essential writings on fossils and catastrophes, enabling readers to better assess Cuvier's importance to science. 25 photos.
