Of Moths and Men: An Evolutionary Tale: The Untold Story of Science and the Peppered Moth
Judith Hooper (au)
A previously untold account of the most famous experiment in 20th-century evolutionary biology. The peppered moths of England were the most renowned insects in the world. They acquired their fame through the pioneering work of H.B.D. Kettlewell, a British physician who, in the 1950s, used this population of moths to capture “evolution in action.” He wanted to prove that the moths were evolving to a darker color in response to industrial pollution, for this would put the finishing touches on Darwin’s theory. Kettlewell was lured to Oxford by the geneticist Edmund Brisco Ford. The story of the “peppered moth” would become one of the most pervasive myths in the history of evolutionary biology.
