Out of Print...Charles Darwin was undoubtedly one of the greatest British scientists, and a genius in the fullest sense of the word. He also possessed the happy knack of instilling knowledge in others and stimulating them to carry out researches and formulate theories of their own. In addition to tracing the progress of his scientific work, this biography shows the development of Darwin the man and gives an interesting glimpse into the life style of the nineteenth century. The story takes us through Darwins childhood and schooldays, his student years at Edinburgh and Cambridge, his long voyage on the 'Beagle' and his discoveries in South America, to his marriage and life at Downe house in Kent. It was here that he wrote his famous work 'The Origin of Species' and many other important papers that ensured him a place among the great scientitic names of all time. Darwin's ecological insights regarding the relationships of groups and individuals mark the beginning of modern environmental science. This clear and easy-to-read biography traces the development and impact of Darwin's thought throughout his life and writings.
