Geographical islands have represented evolutive laboratories for species and a challenge for animals and plants that have had to adapt to the local conditions of these territories. Thus, these isolated places have compelled living beings to find ecological solutions that are different from those normally used on the five continents. Likewise, in the interior of the continents, there are specific places with exclusive environmental conditions that are different from the areas that surround them. These inland ecological islands, many of which have been created by man in his devastating attempt to expand, have similar rules to those of geographical islands. Isolated is the story about the different species that inhabit these islands the geographical islands and the continental islands and how they have to confront the local rules of survival, which, surprisingly, have a lot in common. A marine iguana on the Galapagos Islands, a group of lemurs in Madagascar, a tiger in Sariska Nationa...

Although the Earth was formed some 4.500 million years ago, it had to wait another thousand million years before life emerged in the primeval soup of the Precambrian ocean. Our world had taken the decisive step towards its differentiation in a lifeless solar system. Appropriate physical and chemical conditions allowed the appearance of matter capable of perpetuating itself: life had emerged in a humble but unstoppable way. The complexity of living forms grew as environmental conditions changed. Body structures became more sophisticated giving rise to creatures that were more capable of exploiting the energy of the environment in order to metabolise it and convert it into living matter capable of reproducing its genetic endowment. The first bacteria and single-cell algae made way for the first invertebrates and from those soft functional creatures arose a new much more complex order with an internal skeleton: the vertebrates. The appearance of fish marked the starting point for...
