Charles Darwin

Charles Robert Darwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection. Darwin has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.
