Lawrence joins a naturalist guide to explore the unique wildlife and ecosystem that helped spawn the theory of evolution. Listeners will not only enjoy a fascinating lesson on the island's unique geological features and inhabitants, they will also learn about the marine iguanas on James Island, whose unique adaptations best exemplify the evolutionary theory based on island hopping.
