The geographical distribution of cold-blooded vertebrates.

Q. Rev. Biol., 23, 1-28, 105-23., 1948.

"Darlington's most important contribution to science was his theory of the Old World tropical origin of dominant vertebrate groups. He first sketched out this formulation—which would influence research in zoogeography for a generation—in The Quarterly Review of Biology of 1948, then presented it in full dress in his 1957 text, Zoogeography: The Geographical Distribution of Animals." (E. O.Wilson)
