On the Origin of Species (or more completely, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life), published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_the_Origin_of_Species
He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of Evolution resulted from a process that he called Natural Selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in Selective Breeding. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Darwin (author of On the Origin of Species) (more)
