Charles Darwin Biography
Charles Darwin was an English naturalist and biologist, born on February 12, 1809. He is best known for his theory of evolution and the concept of natural selection, which he presented in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species. Darwin's theory proposed that all species of life have evolved over time through a process of natural selection, in which the most adaptable and fit individuals survive and pass on their advantageous traits to their offspring.
Darwin's work had a profound impact on the scientific understanding of life and the natural world, and continues to shape modern biology and evolutionary theory. He conducted extensive research and fieldwork, including a five-year voyage around the world on the HMS Beagle, which provided much of the data and observations that informed his theories.
In addition to his work on evolution, Darwin also made significant contributions to the fields of geology, botany, and animal behavior. He died on April 19, 1882 at the age of 73. Despite some initial resistance, his theory of evolution is now widely accepted in the scientific community and has become one of the foundation concepts in modern biology.
