Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on [mid-July 1845]

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

The translation of Humboldt's Kosmos [Cosmos (1846–58)] is delayed. Gives instances of peculiar genera with several good species in very small islands. Scarcity of insects on islands. Hooker cannot prove that there is much hybridising, but does not see why there should not be. "Bother variation, development & all such subjects, it is reasoning in a circle I believe after all."
