At the California Academy of Sciences, we are surrounded by evidence for evolution every day. All 26 million specimens in the museum’s research collections have stories to tell about the family tree of life on Earth and the many astonishing adaptations that our relatives have evolved over time. The stories continue on the Academy’s public floor, where live animals demonstrate some of nature’s most innovative survival strategies. This small format book showcases a few of those stories, bringing together stunning photographs of both research specimens and live aquarium animals, case studies by Academy scientists, and essays by Executive Director Greg Farrington and Dean of Science and Research Collections David Mindell.
