Through this book, Francisco García-Talavera, geologist and palaeontologist from the Complutense University of Madrid and PhD in Biology from the University of La Laguna, aims to raise awareness of the peculiarities of the Macaronesian islands and the geographical, historical, biological and cultural bonds that connect them, emphasizing the cohesiveness and brotherhood that exists between island communities. In addition to teaching at the University of La Laguna, Francisco García-Talavera, was curator and director of the Museum of Nature and Archaeology (MUNA) and coordinator of numerous multidisciplinary scientific expeditions to the Macaronesian archipelagos, southern Morocco, the Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal. He has also conducted research, among other places, on the Galapagos, Easter and Robinson Crusoe Islands, the Island of St. Helena, Margarita Island and Antarctica.
