Character description

The entries for Charles Robert Daarwin, author of The Origin of Species are consolidated under Charles Darwin [Charles Robert: 1809-1882]. Although he is generally referred to and searched as Charles Darwin, I thought it appropriate to have his middle name, since Charles was a popular name among the Darwins.

Charles Robert Darwin, FRS (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) 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.
