History of Science

Erasmus Darwin is born in England. A physician, botanist, scholar, and poet, Erasmus Darwin produces one of the earliest statements about natural, biological evolution — but he does so in a poem, not in a scientific treatise. That doesn't occur until much later and it comes from his grandson, Charles Darwin.
