Anniversary of “On the Origin of Species” Publication

On this day in 1859 “On the Origin of Species” was published. In the book Darwin laid out the evidence he had gathered over many years of travel and research, that led him to believe the process of natural selection and evolution was responsible for the biodiversity of life on our planet. Darwin’s ideas were highly controversial and still face opposition today, but they irrevocably changed the way we view the natural world.
