SANTIAGO ISLAND, GALAPAGOS, ECUADOR - MAY 2006: Scientist Frank J. Sulloway examines a Galapagos land snail (bulimulus darwinii). This particular species is named after Charles Darwin, who visited the island where this land snail is found in 1835. As with most native species in the Galapagos, these snails are highly threatened. More than half of the islands' land snail species are now believed to be extinct, owing to the effects of human colonization of the islands. (Photo by Eric Rorer/Aurora) (releasecode: rorer_0008)
