We proceed therefore to offer such remarks as occur on this subject, and such general information on the nature of animals, and their manners, as may justify our principles.It should seem, that, according to the rank of creatures in the scale of life, was their subjection to variation: those of the lower degrees changing most from their pristine stock, those of greatest fecundity changing something at each generation, while creatures of greater bulk, longer life, or superior faculties, less affected by these causes, maintained a nearer resemblance to the forms, manners, and properties of their parental origin.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
