The Man Who Saved Sea Turtles: Archie Carr and the Origins by Frederick Davis

By Frederick Davis

Archie Carr, one of many maximum biologists of the 20 th century, performed a number one half to find a brand new and important position for normal background and systematics in a post-1950s global ruled by way of the glamorous technology of molecular biology. With the increase of molecular biology got here a turning out to be well known understanding of species extinction. Carr championed endangered sea turtles, and his paintings displays significant shifts within the learn of ecology and evolution. A talented nature author, his books at the usual background of sea turtles and their habitats in Florida, the Caribbean, and Africa entertained and proficient a large viewers. Carr's conservation ethic grew from his box paintings in addition to his friendships with the fishermen who provided him with the various tales he retold so engagingly. With Archie Carr because the concentration, the fellow Who kept Sea Turtles explores the evolution of the naturalist culture, biology, and conservation throughout the 20th century.
