Naturalist Charles Darwin was born on February 12th, in 1809. In 1831, he
embarked on a five-year survey voyage around the world on the HMS Beagle.
His studies of specimens around the globe led him to formulate his theory of
evolution and his views on the process of natural selection. Over the course of
the trip, Darwin collected a variety of natural specimens, including birds,
plants and fossils. Through hands-on research and experimentation, he had the
unique opportunity to closely observe principles of botany, geology and
zoology. In 1836, Darwin began to write up his findings. He developed
a revolutionary theory about the origin of living beings that was contrary to
the popular view of other naturalists at the time. Darwin's exposure to
specimens all over the globe raised important questions. Other naturalists
believed that all species either came into being at the start of the world, or
were created over the course of natural history. Darwin, however, noticed
similarities among species all over the globe, along with variations based on
specific locations, leading him to believe that they had gradually evolved from
common ancestors. He came to believe that species survived through a process
called "natural selection," where species that successfully adapted
to meet the changing requirements of their natural habitat thrived, while those
that failed to evolve and reproduce died off. In 1859, he published these
findings in his first book On the Origin of Species.
