Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory. He published his theory of evolution with compelling evidence in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species, overcoming scientific rejection of earlier concepts. Darwin's scientific discovery is the unifying theory of the life sciences, explaining the diversity of life on Earth.
