Meet the Author

Was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace introduced his 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.

From the editorial review for the NOOK version I thought this would be the unabridged version which was edited and published in 1959 by Darwin's nice Nora Barlow. However, this is actually the original abridged version, edited by Darwin's son Francis Darwin. It omits many sections of the manuscript because they were deemed "too sensitive" at that time.
