"The Voyage of the Beagle" is Charles Darwin's journal of his experieces as a naturalist on a scientific data gathering expedition that began in December of 1831 and ended in October of 1836. He taveled around South America and into the Pacific to Australia, Tahiti and New Zealand. Throughout the journey he made very careful observations of the flora and fauna, and collected a multitude of specimens to ship back to England for future study. Much of the data he gathered on the voyage was used as the basis of the theory of evolution he later developed.
