The given options are:

  • Charles Darwin

Correct Answer: Charles Darwin

Info: Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist, geologist, and biologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary biology. His proposition that all species of life have descended from a common ancestor is now widely accepted and considered a fundamental concept in science. The finch specimens collected by Darwin on the second Beagle voyage to the Galápagos weren’t of particular interest at first. However, upon further study, it was discovered that the 15 collected species exhibited various beak characteristics. Those differences eventually helped inform the theory of polymorphism and the evolution of species by natural selection. The multiple species later became known as Darwin’s finches.
