This special volume covers not only North American animals, but the origin of all animals. Until the mid-19th century, most people believed that all animals had always looked and acted exactly the same way from the moment they first appeared on Earth. When Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859, he turned that belief upside down. Based on evidence he collected during a voyage aboard the ship HMS Beagle in the 1830s, Darwin suggested that animals changed over time in response to changes in their environment. He also proposed that some animals died out as new species took their place. How Species Change explains why Darwin's theory of evolution changed science forever, and why the controversy over his findings continues today.
