Charles Darwin - LIFE STORIES
 
 
10/2/1836     Darwin's First Look at the Species
On this day in 1836, twenty-seven-year-old Charles Darwin returned to England from his Beagle voyage, five years and three days after he set out. Eight months later, he had his first, sketchy 'tree-of-life' diagram on paper, though it would take him another twenty-two years to assemble all his data and evolve his full theory.
11/24/1859     Charles Darwin and the Beagle
Charles Darwin's Beagle voyage turned out to be five years rather than the expected two. On it, Darwin evolved from a gentleman-naturalist to a scientist, and collected the stack of notebooks and specimens that would occupy his next twenty-two years. Partial or wacky theories of evolution were in the air in Victorian England -- his own grandfather had proposed one -- and he wanted to be sure. . . .

AboutDarwin.com
An extensive website featuring a biography, articles and reviews about the author's life, times, and works, information about the voyage on the H.M.S. Beagle, friends and important acquaintances, a picture gallery, bibliography, links, and a history of the theory of evolution.

"By the time Darwin was twenty-two years old he was by no means a 'finished naturalist' but he did posses a general knowledge of a wide variety of scientific fields. Perhaps what was more important, however, is that Darwin had developed a burning passion for natural science and an unbounded enthusiasm for exploration. The foundation was now set for Darwin to become one of the greatest naturalist of the 19th century."
BBC - Evolution Website
Why do some species survive, and others die out? Promising "4,000 million years crammed into one website," this BBC production includes a biography, the complete e-text of On the Origin of Species, and articles on the history of Darwinism. Essays explore the scholarly debate and issues surrounding the theory of evolution, while the "extinction files" offer a variety of theories, answers, chat and explanations.

"Darwin the man and Darwin the legacy cannot be easily separated from one another. To understand his work, it is necessary to know something about his life, and to get a handle on his life without touching on his work would be entirely absurd."
Charles Darwin - Religious Beliefs
An excerpt from The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, edited by the author's grand-daughter, Nora Barlow.
Darwin Correspondence Project
A monumental undertaking to publish the definitive edition of letters to and from Charles Darwin, estimated to be some 30 volumes once completed.

The Darwin-L Archives on the Historical Sciences, 1993–1997
"The group had more than 600 members from 35 countries, and produced a consistently high level of discussion. In spite of its name, Darwin-L did not focus specifically on the work of Charles Darwin, but rather covered the entire range of palaetiology from an explicitly comparative perspective, including evolutionary biology, historical linguistics, textual transmission and stemmatics, historical geology, systematics and phylogeny, archeology, paleontology, historical geography, cosmology, and historical anthropology."
