* In 1859, the English naturalist Charles Darwin published ON THE ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES, which proposed that the different species of life-forms on the Earth all descended through a tree of branching paths from common ancestors. Darwin proposed that the process was directed by "natural selection" -- in which random changes in the forms of organisms from generation to generation were weeded out by simple survival, with the "unfit" dying out and the "fit" continuing to propagate. This document provides a brief survey of Darwin's concepts and the modern evolutionary theory (MET) derived from them.
