Shrewsbury-born naturalist Charles Darwin established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestry. He proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection. Darwin served as a naturalist on the HMS 'Beagle' during a five-year voyage in the South Pacific in which he obtained evidence for the evolution of species.
