Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 13 and 15 July 1858

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Sends proofs [of "On the tendency of species to form varieties … ", read 1 July 1858, Collected papers 2: 3–19]. Darwin could publish his abstract [later the Origin] as a separate supplemental number of [Journal of the Linnean Society]. Hooker has studied in detail Darwin's manuscript on variable species in large and small genera and concurs with its consequences. Discusses methodological idiosyncrasies of systematists, e.g., Bentham, Robert Brown, and C. C. Babington, which complicate Darwin's tabulations.
