    Charles Darwin gilt aufgrund seiner Beiträge zur Evolutionstheorie als einer der bedeutendsten Naturwissenschaftler. Die 1831 begonnene und fast fünf Jahre andauernde Reise mit der HMS Beagle, die den jungen Darwin einmal um die Welt führte, war zugleich Schlüsselerlebnis und Grundlage für sein späteres Werk. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wurde Darwin erstmals durch seinen 1839 herausgegebenen Reisebericht bekannt. Mit seiner Theorie über die Entstehung der Korallenriffe und weiteren geologischen Schriften erlangte er in wissenschaftlichen Kreisen zunächst die Anerkennung als Geologe. Spätere Untersuchungen verschafften ihm dann Mitte der 1850er Jahre zusätzlich einen angesehenen Ruf als Zoologe und Taxonom.
