Charles Darwin is considered to be one of the greatest scientists of the 19th century. He was a naturalist who formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection; his Origin of Species (1859) made a meticulous survey of life-forms and the conditions which governed their development; and he wrote other important works on botany, zoology, geology, and evolution. Talk led by Brooke Kerr.
