Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 27 June 1854

'Darwin, C. R.'

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Hooker's view, with which Darwin agrees when it can be applied, is the same as Milne-Edwards', i.e., the physiological division of labour. There is little agreement among zoologists and Darwin admits his own lack of clarity.
