WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DARWIN'S GREAT-GREAT-GRANDDAUGHTER, RUTH PADEL When the eminent naturalist Charles Darwin returned from South America on board the H.M.S Beagle in 1836, he brought with him the notes and evidence which would form the basis of his landmark theory of evolution of species by a process of natural selection. This theory, published as The Origin of Species in 1859, is the basis of modern biology and the concept of biodiversity. It also sparked a fierce scientific, religious and philosophical debate which still continues today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Why does Darwin's theory matter now? Because it is the basis of modern biology and much medical research; it provides a tool with which to understand the natural world; it offers a deeper, if imperfect, understanding of our behaviour, about where we came from and where we might be going" * Observer *
"The single best idea anybody ever had" -- Daniel Dennet, philosopher
"The most important book ever written" * New Scientist *
"No other book has so transformed how we look at the natural world and mankind's origins" * Sunday Telegraph *
"There are few books that I read more than once but The Origin Of Species by Charles Darwin is one" -- David Attenborough
