    The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin's book "On the Origin of Species" in 1859, is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits.

    Specifically he wrote about The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection, a joint collaboration with Alfred Russel Wallace.

    The more general Theory of Evolution is a theory that has included not only early contributions by Darwin and Wallace but also work on inheritance by Mendel, Mayr's work on speciation and population genetics, and a whole new outlook based upon the discovery of DNA by Crick, Watson, and Franklin.

    That was the entire purpose of the work, along with arguing why he thought it to be true.
