Evolution, the Unifying Concept Cardof Biology
In 1859, CharlesDarwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) published On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, presenting a strong, logical explanation of descent with modification, evolution by the mechanism of natural selection.
Evolution is descent of species from common ancestors, with genetic modifications that make each species more suited to its environment.
Randal Keynes, 62, is the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin. He is also the author of the book Darwin, His Daughter, and Human Evolution, inspiration for the new film Creation, starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly. The film opened last Friday and gets a wider release Jan. 29.
