More Letters of Charles Darwin — Volume 2 This is the 2nd volume of More letters of Charles Darwin and contains further extended studies of Darwin and his work , as well as brief notes of his biography.
Charles Darwin Can we doubt that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

Charles Darwin A book on evolutionary theory. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.
Charles Darwin Darwin wrote the book, which he entitled Recollections of the Development of my Mind and Character, for his family. He still stands as the leading figure of that revolution in scientific thought which followed the publication of the Origin of Species in the middle of the 19th century, a revolution soon involving all realms of knowledge. But posterity must continually reassess the past, and accurate contemporary sources are specially needed to provide insight into those stormy seasons when the wind of accepted belief changes. The great figures must be seen in their own setting and their own words must be heard, cleared of the posthumous growth of later dogmas. In the Autobiography Charles Darwin tells the story of the slow maturing of his mind and of his theories, leading to the publication of the Linnean paper with A. R. Wallace in 1858, and of the Origin of Species in 1859. The time has come for restoring the suppressions made in 1887. The occasional astringency of some passages had to be censored seventy years ago out of deference to the feelings of friends; now these comments not only seem harmless, but are revealing flashes lighting up the past.

Charles Darwin I have stated in the preface to the first Edition of this work, and in the Zoology of the Voyage of the Beagle, that it was in consequence of a wish expressed by Captain Fitz Roy, of having some scientific person on board, accompanied by an offer from him of giving up part of his own accommodations, that I volunteered my services, which received, through the kindness of the hydrographer, Captain Beaufort, the sanction of the Lords of the Admiralty. As I feel that the opportunities which I enjoyed of studying the Natural History of the different countries we visited, have been wholly due to Captain Fitz Roy, I hope I may here be permitted to repeat my expression of gratitude to him; and to add that, during the five years we were together, I received from him the most cordial friendship and steady assistance. Both to Captain Fitz Roy and to all the Officers of the Beagle [note 1] I shall ever feel most thankful for the undeviating kindness with which I was treated during our long voyage.
Charles Darwin The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals is a book concerning genetically determined aspects of behaviour. The Descent of Man, Darwin's main consideration of human origins. In this book, Darwin seeks to trace the animal origins of human characteristics, such as the pursing of the lips in concentration and the tightening of the muscles around the eyes in anger and efforts of memory. Darwin sought out the opinions of some eminent British psychiatrists, notably James Crichton-Browne, which forms Darwin's main contribution to psychology. The Expression of the Emotions is also an important landmark in the history of book illustration.
Charles Darwin The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, Being the first part of the geology of the voyage of the Beagle, under the command of Capt. Fitzroy, R. N. during the years 1832 to 1836, was published in 1842 as Charles Darwin's first monograph, and set out histheory of the formation of coral reefs and atolls. He conceived of the idea during the voyage of the Beagle while still in South America, before he had seen a coral island, and wrote it out as HMS Beagle crossed the Pacific Ocean, completing his draft by November 1835. At the time there was great scientific interest in the way that coral reefs formed, and Captain Robert FitzRoy's orders from the Admiraltyincluded the investigation of an atoll as an important scientific aim of the voyage. FitzRoy chose to survey the Keeling Islands in the Indian Ocean. The results supported Darwin's theory that the various types of coral reefs and atolls could be explained by uplift andsubsidence of vast areas of the Earth's crust under the oceans.
Charles Darwin The Different Forms of Flowers on Plants of the Same Species is a book Using the four classifications established by Carl Linnaeus (hermaphroditic, monoecious, dioecious, polygamous), In 1883, Alfred Russel Wallace wrote a tribute to Darwin (entitled 'The Debt of Science to Darwin’) who had died the year before.
Charles Darwin Geological Observations on the Volcanic Islands, visited during the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle is a book written by the English naturalist based on his travels during the second voyage of HMS Beagle, The text contains seven chapters, and includes observations made during Darwin's travels to the volcanic island of St. Jago in Cape Verde, the Fernando de Noronha archipelago, Ascension Island, the island of Saint Helena, the Galápagos Islands, James Island, New Zealand, Australia, Van Diemen's Land, and the Cape of Good Hope.
Charles Darwin Darwin’s most famous work formed the bedrock of evolutionary biology
In one of the most important contributions to scientific knowledge, Charles Darwin puts forth the theory that species evolve over time through the process of natural selection. When he first established this hypothesis, many ideas about evolution had already been proposed and were receiving public acclaim, but none could fully explain the course of human evolution as elegantly as Darwin’s did. Drawn from extensive research performed on various creatures living in the Galápagos Islands, his research suggests that “one species does change into another.” This revolutionary notion has become a landmark of scientific theory.

Charles Darwin (1809–1882) was an English naturalist and geologist best known for his contributions to the field of evolutionary biology. After sailing around the world on the HMS Beagle in 1831, Darwin wrote On the Origin of Species, which put forth his theory of natural selection.
Charles Darwin Volume is not chronologically continuous with the first. Again, in the third volume, the botanical work, which principally occupied my father during the later years of his life, is treated in a separate series of chapters. Of letters addressed to my father I have not made much use. It was his custom to file all letters received, and when his slender stock of files ("spits" as he called them was exhausted, he would burn the letters of several years, in order that he might make use of the liberated "spits." This process, carried on for years, destroyed nearly all letters received before 1862. After that date he was persuaded to keep the more interesting letters, and these are preserved in an accessible form.
Charles Darwin & Julian Huxley Charles Darwin’s classic that exploded into public controversy, revolutionized the course of science, and continues to transform our views of the world.
Few other books have created such a lasting storm of controversy as The Origin of Species. Darwin’s theory that species derive from other species by a gradual evolutionary process and that the average level of each species is heightened by the “survival of the fittest” stirred up popular debate to fever pitch. Its acceptance revolutionized the course of science.
As Sir Julian Huxley, the noted biologist, points out in his illuminating introduction, the importance of Darwin’s contribution to modern scientific knowledge is almost impossible to evaluate: “a truly great book, one which can still be read with profit by professional biologist.”
Charles Darwin This book continues his work in producing evidence for his theory of natural selection. As it was one of his last books, followed only by the publication of The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms, he was assisted by his son Francis in conducting the necessary experiments and preparing the manuscript.
Charles Darwin Insectivorous Plants is a book by British naturalist and evolutionary theory pioneer Charles Darwin, Part of a series of works by Darwin related to his theory of natural selection, the book is a study of carnivorous plants with specific attention paid to the adaptations that allow them to live in difficult conditions.  It includes illustrations by Darwin himself, along with drawings by his sons George and Francis Darwin.
Charles Darwin A large proportion of the book contains detailed information on the domestication of animals and plants but it also contains in Chapter XXVII a description of Darwin's theory of heredity which he called pangenesis.
Charles Darwin Charles Darwin, el científico naturalista que más contribuyó a la historia de la biología, nació en Shrewsbury el 9 de febrero de 1809. Quinto hijo de Robert Darwin, un próspero médico rural, y de Susannah Potter, creció en el seno de una sofisticada familia inglesa. Luego de finalizar sus estudios en la escuela de Shrewsbury, ingresó en la Universidad de Edimburgo para cursar medicina. En 1827 abandonó la carrera y comenzó estudios de teología en la Facultad de Estudios Cristianos, en la Universidad de Cambridge, con el fin de convertirse en clérigo rural, como lo deseaba su padre. Allí inició una íntima amistad con John Stevens Henslow, cura y botánico, que lo llevó consigo en largas expediciones para recolectar plantas y lo recomendó al capitán Fitz Roy como tripulante del buque inglés Beagle.
Charles Darwin The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex is a book on evolutionary theory by English naturalist Charles Darwin, first published in 1871. It was Darwin's second book on evolutionary theory, following his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species, in which he explored the concept of natural selection. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.
Charles Darwin Geological Observations on South America is a book written by the English naturalist Charles Darwin. The book was published in 1846, and is based on his travels during the second voyage of HMS Beagle, commanded by captain Robert FitzRoy. The HMS Beagle arrived in South America to map out the coastlines and islands of the region for the British Navy. On the journey, Darwin collected fossils and plants, and recorded the continent's geological features.
Charles Darwin On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. In the book, Darwin introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through the process of natural selection.
Charles Darwin More Letters of Charles Darwin, a sequel to The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin of 1887.contains almost entirely new matter although some extracts and a few whole letters are also found in Life and letters. It also contains a brief autobiographical piece.
Charles Darwin Following the Origin of Species Darwin set out to produce evidence for his theory of natural selection. Initially Darwin spent much time in studying plants to achieve this aim. This book stands second in line to his first work on plants, On the various contrivances by which British and foreign orchids are fertilised by insects. This work is subdivided into chapters concentrating on a particular type of climber which he divided into four main classes but Darwin, in this volume, concentrates on the two main classes, the twining plants and the leaf climbers (divided into two sub-divisions: leaf climbers and tendril bearers)

About the Author
Charles Robert Darwin
Charles Robert Darwin, FRS (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Darwin published his theory with compelling evidence for evolution in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species, overcoming scientific rejection of earlier concepts of transmutation of species. By the 1870s the scientific community and much of the general public had accepted evolution as a fact. However, many favored competing explanations and it was not until the emergence of the modern evolutionary synthesis from the 1930s to the 1950s that a broad consensus developed in which natural selection was the basic mechanism of evolution. In modified form, Darwin's scientific discovery is the unifying theory of the life sciences, explaining the diversity of life.
Darwin's early interest in nature led him to neglect his medical education at the University of Edinburgh; instead, he helped to investigate marine invertebrates. Studies at the University of Cambridge encouraged his passion for natural science. His five-year voyage on HMS Beagle established him as an eminent geologist whose observations and theories supported Charles Lyell's uniformitarian ideas, and publication of his journal of the voyage made him famous as a popular author.
In recognition of Darwin's pre-eminence as a scientist, he was honoured with a state funeral and buried in Westminster Abbey, close to John Herschel and Isaac Newton. Darwin has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.
Charles Darwin In some brains it appears simply as an indentation of the margin of the hemisphere, but, in others, it extends for some distance more or less transversely outwards. I saw t in the right hemisphere of a female brain pass more than two inches outwards; and on another specimen, also the right hemisphere, it proceeded for four-tenths of an inch outwards, and then extended downwards, as far as the lower margin of the outer surface of the hemisphere. The imperfect definition of this fissure in the majority of human brains, as compared with its remarkable distinctness in the brain of most Quadrumana, is owing to the presence, in the former, of certain superficial, well marked, secondary convolutions which bridge it over and connect the parietal with the occipital lobe. The closer the first of these bridging gyri lies to the longitudinal fissure, the shorter is the external parieto-occipital fissure (loc. cit. p. 12).
Charles Darwin The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom is a book on evolution in plants. In this book Darwin examines the effects of cross and self fertilisation of plants and provides experimental evidence for a hypothesis stated in his famed book of 1859, Origin of Species, that "in none [i. e. plant] [...] can self-fertilisation go on for perpetuity" (Origin, p. 101). He reports on experiments conducted on over 60 different species of plants, where he used controlled pollinations in order to produce self-fertilised and cross-fertilised descendants. Through growth experiments of this progeny, he concluded that self-fertilised progeny performed poorer in most species and for most traits measured. Thus he showed that inbreeding may have severe detrimental effects on progeny. While this idea was accepted by many, e. g. plant and animal breeders, Darwin's book provided overwhelming experimental support for this idea. This book has remained the starting point for the study of inbreeding and is cited in scientific papers to this effect to this day.

Charles Darwin A large proportion of the book contains detailed information on the domestication of animals and plants. Darwin had been working for two years on his big book on Natural Selection, when on 18 June 1858 he received a parcel from Alfred Wallace, who was then living in Borneo. It enclosed a twenty pages manuscript describing an evolutionary mechanism that was similar to Darwin's own theory.
Charles Darwin Darwin consolidated a lifetime of work in On the Origin of Species, compiling his discoveries from the voyage of the Beagle, his experiments, research and correspondence. He argues for the transmutation of species over time by the process of natural selection. His work laid the foundation of evolutionary biology, though when it was published it caused tremendous religious and philosophical debates. Darwin's work is still seen by many people to oppose Christian beliefs.

Darwin’s Journal and Remarks, was written during the expedition of the ship HMS Beagle, which set sail from Plymouth Sound on 27 December 1831. Darwin’s Journal contains a vivid description of the creatures, geology, and geography he encountered. The Galapagos, the archipelago of islands off the coast of Ecuador, are now synonymous with Darwin.. Darwin discovered that the mockingbird species varied from each island in the Galapagos, which served as the catalyst for his theory on natural selection, published 28 years later.
Charles Darwin Many naturalists, affords me most sincere pleasure. I had originally intended to have described only a single abnormal Cirripede, from the shores of South America, and was led, for the sake of comparison, to examine the internal parts of as many genera as I could procure. Under these circumstances, Mr. J. E. Gray, in the most disinterested manner, suggested to me making a Monograph on the entire class, although he himself had already collected materials for this same object. Furthermore, Mr. Gray most kindly gave me his strong support, when I applied to the Trustees of the British Museum for the use of the public collection; and I here most respectfully beg to offer my grateful acknowledgments to the Trustees, for their most liberal and unfettered permission of examining, and when necessary, disarticulating the specimens in the magnificent collection of Cirripedes, commenced by Dr. Leach, and steadily added to, during many years, by Mr. Gray. Considering the difficulty in determining the species in this class, had it not been for this most liberal permission by the Trustees, the public collection would have been of[Pg vi] no use to me, or to any other naturalist, in systematically classifying the Cirripedes.
Charles Darwin A Vigo Classics book
Few books can boast the impact of Charles Darwin's 1859 work, which set out his theory of evolution through natural selection. The groundbreaking ideas formed the basis of evolutionary biology and changed not just scientific understanding but how mankind viewed its place on Earth.
Charles Darwin L'Origine des espèces par le moyen de la sélection naturelle, ou la préservation des races favorisées dans la lutte pour la vie (Titre anglais original : On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life) est un ouvrage de Charles Darwin, publié le 24 novembre 1859 et dans lequel il explique le mécanisme présidant, selon lui, à l'évolution graduelle des espèces vivantes dans la nature. En dépit de son titre, cet ouvrage est considéré aujourd'hui comme fondateur de la théorie de l'évolution moderne. Darwin mentionne différents prédécesseurs, à la fois concernant l'idée de descendance avec modification et l'idée de sélection naturelle dans une Notice historique ajoutée à partir de la troisième édition.

The Voyage of the Beagle is a title commonly given to the book written by Charles Darwin and published in 1839 as his Journal and Remarks, bringing him considerable fame and respect. The title refers to the second survey expedition of the ship HMS Beagle, which set sail from Plymouth Sound on 27 December 1831.
While the expedition was originally planned to last two years, it lasted almost five—the Beagle did not return until 2 October 1836. Darwin spent most of this time exploring on land (three years and three months on land; 18 months at sea). The Voyage of the Beagle contains a vivid description of the creatures, geology, and geography he encountered.

Charles Darwin On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. In the 1872 sixth edition "On" was omitted, so the full title is The origin of species by means of natural selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life. This edition is usually known as The Origin of Species. Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation.
Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals. The political and theological implications were intensely debated, but transmutation was not accepted by the scientific mainstream.
The book was written for non-specialist readers and attracted widespread interest upon its publication. As Darwin was an eminent scientist, his findings were taken seriously and the evidence he presented generated scientific, philosophical, and religious discussion. The debate over the book contributed to the campaign by T. H. Huxley and his fellow members of the X Club to secularise science by promoting scientific naturalism. Within two decades there was widespread scientific agreement that evolution, with a branching pattern of common descent, had occurred, but scientists were slow to give natural selection the significance that Darwin thought appropriate. During "the eclipse of Darwinism" from the 1880s to the 1930s, various other mechanisms of evolution were given more credit. With the development of the modern evolutionary synthesis in the 1930s and 1940s, Darwin's concept of evolutionary adaptation through natural selection became central to modern evolutionary theory, and it has now become the unifying concept of the life sciences.

On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. (Wikipedia)
Charles Darwin The Origin of Species, 6th edition, published in 1872 is the pivotal work in evolutionary biology. The book is readable by a non-specialist and attracts widespread interest today as it did 150 years ago. The 6th Edition is often considered the definititive edition.
Charles Darwin Durante la noche el Beagle echa el ancla en la bahía de Valparaíso, principal puerto de Chile. Al amanecer nos encontramos en cubierta. Acabamos de abandonar Tierra del Fuego; ¡qué cambio!, ¡qué delicioso nos parece todo esto aquí: tan transparente es la atmósfera, tan puro y azul es el cielo, tanto brilla el sol, tanta vida parece rebosar la naturaleza! Desde el lugar en que hemos anclado, la vista es preciosa. La ciudad se alza al pie de una cadona de colinas bastante escarpadas y que tienen cerca de 1,600 pies (480 metros) de altitud. Debido a esa situación, Valparaíso no es sino una larga calle paralela a la costa: pero cada vez que un barranco abre el flanco de las montañas, las casas se amontonan a uno y otro lado. Una vegetación muy escasa cubre esas colinas redondeadas y los lados rojo vivo de los numerosos barranquillos que las separan brillan al sol. El color del terreno, las casas bajas blanqueadas con cal y cubiertas de tejas, me recordaban mucho a Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Hacia el nordeste hay una vista espléndida de los Andes, pero desde lo alto de las colinas vecinas se les ve mucho mejor; se puede apreciar la gran distancia a que se hallan situados y el panorama es magnífico. El volcán Aconcagua ofrece un aspecto particularmente imponente. Esa inmensa masa irregular alcanza una altitud más considerable que el Chimborazo, porque, según las triangulaciones hechas por los oficiales del Beagle, llegan a una altitud de 23.000 pies (6.900 metros). Sin embargo, vista desde donde nos hallamos, la Cordillera debe una gran parte de su belleza a la atmósfera a través de la que se divisa. ¡Qué admirable espectáculo el de esas montañas que se destacan sobre el azul del cielo y cuyos colores revisten los más vivos matices en el momento en que el sol se pone en el Pacífico!.
Charles Darwin Charles Darwin's Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871) was the single most important European or American nineteenth-century statement that man is an integral part of the animal kingdom. As a work of science, Descent of Man mattered more, and was more coherent, rigorous, and in tune with scientific opinion than that of any of its predecessors in evolutionary theory. Darwin's "Man book" was a bigger immediate success than any of his other books, including the epochal Origin of Species (1859), and it was soon translated into numerous languages. Darwin wrote with engaging literary style, charming modesty, brilliant argument, and a discursive method of proof, making the book an exhilarating romp through the Earth's known natural history and our own history as well as contemporary scientists knew it.

Charles Darwin A la mañana siguiente, al acercarnos al Río Colorado, vimos cambiar el aspecto de la región, y pronto llegamos a una pradera cubierta de césped que, con sus flores, su trébol crecido, y sus pequeños búhos, se parecía mucho a las pampas. También dejamos a nuestro paso un fangoso pantano bastante extenso, que en verano se seca y queda cubierto de incrustaciones de diferentes sales, de donde deriva su. denominación de salitral. Estaba recubierto de plantas bajas y carnosas, de la misma clase que las que crecen a orillas del mar. El Colorado, en el paso por donde lo atravesamos, tiene solamente unas sesenta yardas de ancho, aunque por lo general su anchura debe ser el doble. Su curso es muy sinuoso y está jalonado de sauces y macizos de juncos.
Charles Darwin & Richard Dawkins [Illustrated jacket]
Introduced by Richard Dawkins.
Easily the most influential book published in the nineteenth century, Darwin’s The Origin of Species is also that most unusual phenomenon, an altogether readable discussion of a scientific subject. On its appearance in 1859 it was immediately recognized by enthusiasts and detractors alike as a work of the greatest importance: its revolutionary theory of evolution by means of natural selection provoked a furious reaction that continues to this day.
The Origin of Species is here published together with Darwin’s earlier Voyage of the ‘Beagle.’ This 1839 account of the journeys to South America and the Pacific islands that first put Darwin on the track of his remarkable theories derives an added charm from his vivid description of his travels in exotic places and his eye for the piquant detail.
