Charles Darwin and the love for animals

The father of evolutionary biology devoted his life to studying animal behavior, for whom he showed a deep love and respect

Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882) was an English naturalist now regarded as the father of evolutionary biology. His studies on natural selection are unanimously accepted by the scientific community since the 30s of the last century as the primary explanation of the theory of evolution.

His major work, On the Origin of Species (1859), establishes that biodiversity is explained by the changes accumulated over successive generations, but he also published other works in which he studied the behaviour of animals, of which he was always a great defender, and some researches centered on the human being, who he always linked forever with this famous quote: "The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man."
