Charles Robert Darwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from a common ancestry, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection.He 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.
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. Tierra del Fuego, the archipelago of islands at the southernmost tip of South America, was remarked by Darwin as one of the most amazing places he visited.
