The Naturalist in Nicaragua

Front Cover
The Minerva Group, Inc., 2002 - 344 pages
The best of all natural history journals which have ever been published.--Charles Darwin, 1874. Beautifully illustrated and a pleasure to read, this classic book describes the geography, geology, ecology, flora, fauna, and native inhabitants of Nicaragua in the nineteenth century. Many of Belt's detailed and accurate observations were not confirmed until decades later--for example, the fact that certain plants have standing armies of ants that defend them.
