This paper describes the events that led to Darwin's theory of evolution and explains what Darwin means by natural selection. This paper illuminates that Darwin made his observations, which became the basic material for his major work on evolution, during his trip to the Galapagos Islands. The author points out that Darwin's theory of natural selection involves natural variations occurring in the same species.

From the Paper:

"Darwin's theory involves natural variations occurring in this bird species. While they are the same species, some individuals have slightly different traits. One individual bird is born with a longer beak than the others. This bird is better able to retrieve insects from the ground. This bird lives better, lives longer and creates more offspring. These offspring continue to have the longer beak that allows them to eat better from the ground. These birds are better able to survive than birds with smaller beaks. The end result is that the area where the food is insect life becomes populated by birds that are best suited to this environment."
