503 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 3,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even before Charles Darwin changed the world with his theory of natural selection, he was recognised as an eminent scientist and natural historian. Published in 1840, his Journal of Researches into the Geology and Natural History of the Various Countries Visited by H.M.S. Beagle reveals him as a writer of formidable intelligence and a keen observer of natural and human life. Darwin's journal encompasses every observable detail of the animals, birds and plants he encountered on the five-year voyage. It includes minute descriptions and even sketches of the movements and habits of hitherto unfamiliar species. Accompanying the entries are his own conclusions, analyses and classificatory notes that demonstrate his skill and talent as a naturalist. Darwin's entries on natural phenomena are interspersed with anecdotes of the indigenous peoples he encountered, transforming his journal from an impersonal scientific record to a book of true human interest
Insectivorous plants by Charles Darwin( Book )

202 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin had long been fascinated by insectivorous plants, from the native British sundews and bladderworts to the exotic pinguiculas and nepenthes which he encountered during the Beagle voyage. Growing in environments low in soil nutrients, their highly specialised ways of obtaining enough food, including the capability for fast movement in the case of the Venus flytrap, were evidence of evolutionary adaptation. But he was also interested in what food they needed, and whether they would be selective when offered a varied diet; and how did the flytrap close its trap on its prey? Darwin conducted a range of simple but ingenious experiments on his collection of insectivores and observed and noted the results of each with his customary meticulousness. The results can be seen in this book, which remains of enormous interest to anyone whose imagination has been fired by these strange and beautiful plants
The variation of animals and plants under domestication by Charles Darwin( Book )

272 editions published between 1773 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The formation of vegetable mould, through the action of worms, with observations on their habits by Charles Darwin( Book )

278 editions published between 1881 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, published in 1881, was the result of many years of experimentation and observation by Darwin in the open-air laboratory of his garden at Down House in Kent. As he wrote in his introduction, the subject of soil disturbance by worms 'may appear an insignificant one, but we shall see that it possesses some interest'. He goes on to demonstrate the immensity - in size and over time - of the accumulated tiny movements of soil by earthworms, and their vital role in aerating the soil and breaking down vegetable material to keep the topsoil, the growing medium for all plant life and thus vital to human existence, fertile and healthy. At a time when there is huge interest in growing food organically and without using artificial fertilisers, Darwin's insights are as important, and his descriptions of his experiments as fascinating, as they were in the late nineteenth century

The different forms of flowers on plants of the same species by Charles Darwin( Book )

123 editions published between 1877 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the publication of On the Origin of Species in 1859 Darwin became fascinated with the potential for botanical experiments to provide evidence for the process of evolution. First published in 1877, this volume is based on a series of papers concerning heterostylous plants (species which produce different types of flowers) originally published in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnaen Society in 1862. Linnaeus had divided the sexual relations of flowers into four groups, which Darwin uses as the structure for this volume. Darwin examines in detail plants which produce different flower forms, presenting his conclusions in terms of adaptive evolution and so providing the first functional interpretation of heterostyly. He demonstrates that these plants are adapted for cross-fertilisation, not self-fertilisation as was widely believed. The concepts which Darwin introduces in this volume continue to provide the basis for research into plant reproductive biology
The effects of cross and self fertilisation in the vegetable kingdom by Charles Darwin( Book )

169 editions published between 1875 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin's impetus for the experiments of which the results are recorded in this book was 'a mere accidental observation; and indeed it required the accident to be repeated before my attention was thoroughly aroused to the remarkable fact that seedlings of self-fertilised parentage are inferior, even in the first generation, in height and vigour to seedlings of cross-fertilised parentage'. After eleven years of meticulous experimentation and observation, described in this volume, he was ready to publish in 1876 the detailed study which he regarded as a companion volume to his 1862 On the Various Contrivances by which British and Foreign Orchids are Fertilised by Insects. His 'first and most important of the conclusions which may be drawn ... is that cross-fertilisation is generally beneficial, and self-fertilisation injurious': this understanding is of course the basis of all modern plant breeding programmes
The various contrivances by which orchids are fertilised by insects by Charles Darwin( Book )

102 editions published between 1862 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this late 19th-century scientific study, famous English naturalist Charles Darwin refutes the theory that variations of plants in nature are from the design of a great creator. Instead, he theorizes that the fertilisation of plants by insects results in the dominance of successful species
Charles Darwin and the voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin( Book )

23 editions published between 1945 and 2000 in English and German and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of Erasmus Darwin by Charles Darwin( Book )

25 editions published between 1879 and 2011 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is not a narrative biography, but rather a series of illuminating insights into Erasmus Darwin's life and work, with quotations from letters and candid comments by Charles Darwin. Charles always writes well, but here he is free of the inhibitions of scientific convention, and you feel you are really meeting him in person. This account of his grandfather Erasmus Darwin is the last of Charles Darwin's books to be published in full."--Jacket
The life and letters of Charles Darwin : including an autobiographical chapter by Charles Darwin( Book )

142 editions published between 1887 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The letters given in these chapters will illustrate and amplify the history of Charles Darwin. Specifically the following topics are discussed: the foundations of the 'Origin of Species'; the growth of the 'Origin of Species'; the unfinished book; the writing of the 'Origin of Species'; Professor Huxley on the reception of the 'Origin of Species'; the publication of the 'Origin of Species'; and the spread of evolution."
