Summary
After setting sail aboard the Beagle to carry out a scientific expedition, Charles Darwin made some surprising discoveries: using the example of finches on the Galapagos Islands, he concluded that each of the 13 species he found must have evolved from one common ancestor and adapted to best suit their environment. This led to him developing his theory of evolution and identifying natural selection as the cause, both of which are explained in his world-famous On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. This book is a practical and accessible guide to understanding more about Darwin's Theory of Evolution, providing you with the essential information and saving time. In 50 minutes you will be able to: - Understand more about the political, economic and social context in which the theory was developed and why the publication of the theory led to many controversies and debates - Learn more about the founder of the theory of evolution, Charles Darwin - Analyze the progression of Darwin's work, including his travels, discoveries and the final publication of his theory after 20 years of development
