While The Voyage of the Beagle only touches upon the Galapagos Islands, it’s Darwin’s actual journal about the journey that inspired his later works. The Origin of Species focuses on the concept of natural selection and evolution, but is written for the general reader and is the book that created a momentous shift in scientific thinking.   And in Darwin published a classic book under its original title, "Journal of Researches." The book was later republished as "The Voyage of the Beagle," and remains in print to this day. The book is a lively and charming account of Darwin’s travels, written with intelligence and occasional flashes of humor.   Darwin wrote about his travels in the book The Voyage of the Beagle and fully explored the information he gained from the Galapagos Finches in his most famous book On the Origin of Species. It was in that publication that he first discussed how species changed over time, including divergent evolution, or adaptive radiation, of the Galapagos : Heather Scoville.
