Always Eating Dirt.

Charlotte-Gill300px(Este post se repetirá traducido al castellano el próximo viernes)

Once again I feel compelled to share with my visitors an excellent paragraph chosen from that wonderful book by Charlotte Hill: EATING DIRT. And as usual, I will translate it into Spanish next Friday.

…Pangaea split into two continents, Laurasia to the north and Gondwana to the south. As these two landmasses drifted apart, new species evolved into two parallel lineages. The effects of this genetic quarantine are still visible today in the distribution of modern tree types. Conifers that grow in the southern reaches of Chile, Argentina and Oceania look nothing at all like those in the Northern Hemisphere, though the species of Russia and Canada are quite similar…

As you can see, the text is very good and I will never get tired of recommending this book to my readers.

See you next Monday. Graciela
