It has been identified in the archipelago 220 endemic plant species, 399 native and 119 introduced; this flora was carried by the winds, the sea or by men, migratory birds of the continent carrying in their feathers, beaks and paws seeds and spores germinating in the insular soil transforming over time, its own structure and physiology as a result of acclimatization to the new way of life.

Map and a brief history of the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos archipelago was discovered by chance in 1535, when the bishop of Panama, Tomas de Berlanga, drifted off course as he headed for Peru. The bishop reported his discovery to King Charles V of Spain and included in his report a description of the giant Galapagos (turtle) that gave its name to the islands.
