About the Author
Charles Darwin, famous English biologist and the father of evolution, was born February 12, 1809 in Shrewsbury, England.

Following his graduation from Cambridge, Darwin was encouraged to take an extended sea voyage and exploration of the world outside of England. Darwin took advantage of the opportunity - without pay - and became expedition naturalist and gentlemen's companion to Capt. Robert FitzRoy, on the HMS Beagle. The intended 3-year voyage stretched to 5 years, and Darwin had wonderful experiences as he circumnavigated the world, spending over 3 years of the 5 exploring the coastline, flora and fauna of South America.

Darwin's research resulting from this voyage formed the basis of his famous book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. Published in 1859, the work aroused a storm of controversy. Here Darwin outlined his theory of evolution, challenging the contemporary beliefs about the creation of life on earth.

Darwin continued to write and publish his works on biology throughout his life.
