  • Hardback
  • £12.99

Looks at two key scientists and how they influenced each other

Mary Leakey was an archaeologist who specialised in searching for remains of early humans. Jane Goodall is a researcher who has devoted her life to studying the behaviour of chimpanzees, the ape thought to be man's closest living relative. Over the course of 50 years, Mary and Jane's discoveries have revolutionised the way that people think about evolution, increased scientists' understanding of man's earliest ancestors and proved that humans and apes are not so different after all. This book explores the life and work of these two remarkable people.

How have some of the most successful scientific pairings in history changed the advancement of science and led to discoveries that might never otherwise have been made? Dynamic Duos of Science explores the fascinating scientific partnerships between some of the world's leading scientists. From Darwin and Wallace to Einstein and Eddington, without these 'dynamic pairings' some of the most spectacular discoveries and critical theories in the history of science might never have been made. An informative series for children aged 9+.
