Insectivorous plants by Charles Darwin( Book )
211 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,962 libraries worldwide
Darwin had long been fascinated by insectivorous plants, from the native British sundews and bladderworts to the exotic pinguiculas and nepenthes which he encountered during the Beagle voyage. Growing in environments low in soil nutrients, their highly specialised ways of obtaining enough food, including the capability for fast movement in the case of the Venus flytrap, were evidence of evolutionary adaptation. But he was also interested in what food they needed, and whether they would be selective when offered a varied diet; and how did the flytrap close its trap on its prey? Darwin conducted a range of simple but ingenious experiments on his collection of insectivores and observed and noted the results of each with his customary meticulousness. The results can be seen in this book, which remains of enormous interest to anyone whose imagination has been fired by these strange and beautiful plants
The variation of animals and plants under domestication by Charles Darwin( Book )

The formation of vegetable mould, through the action of worms, with observations on their habits by Charles Darwin( Book )
293 editions published between 1881 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,682 libraries worldwide
This book, published in 1881, was the result of many years of experimentation and observation by Darwin in the open-air laboratory of his garden at Down House in Kent. As he wrote in his introduction, the subject of soil disturbance by worms 'may appear an insignificant one, but we shall see that it possesses some interest'. He goes on to demonstrate the immensity - in size and over time - of the accumulated tiny movements of soil by earthworms, and their vital role in aerating the soil and breaking down vegetable material to keep the topsoil, the growing medium for all plant life and thus vital to human existence, fertile and healthy. At a time when there is huge interest in growing food organically and without using artificial fertilisers, Darwin's insights are as important, and his descriptions of his experiments as fascinating, as they were in the late nineteenth century

The origin of species by means of natural selection : or the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life[,] and the descent of man and selection in relation to sex by Charles Darwin( Book )
46 editions published between 1859 and 2015 in English and held by 1,714 libraries worldwide
The Origin of Species is the landmark book that for better of worse put science and religion at odds. Very few people who have read this book and come away not believing in evolution. The detail of research is even by today's standards stunning; and the writing is still eminently readable. Second only to the Bible in its scope of influence, this book is a pertinent today as when it was first written
The different forms of flowers on plants of the same species by Charles Darwin( Book )
124 editions published between 1877 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,578 libraries worldwide
After the publication of On the Origin of Species in 1859 Darwin became fascinated with the potential for botanical experiments to provide evidence for the process of evolution. First published in 1877, this volume is based on a series of papers concerning heterostylous plants (species which produce different types of flowers) originally published in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnaen Society in 1862. Linnaeus had divided the sexual relations of flowers into four groups, which Darwin uses as the structure for this volume. Darwin examines in detail plants which produce different flower forms, presenting his conclusions in terms of adaptive evolution and so providing the first functional interpretation of heterostyly. He demonstrates that these plants are adapted for cross-fertilisation, not self-fertilisation as was widely believed. The concepts which Darwin introduces in this volume continue to provide the basis for research into plant reproductive biology
The effects of cross and self fertilisation in the vegetable kingdom by Charles Darwin( Book )
177 editions published between 1875 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,382 libraries worldwide
Darwin's impetus for the experiments of which the results are recorded in this book was 'a mere accidental observation; and indeed it required the accident to be repeated before my attention was thoroughly aroused to the remarkable fact that seedlings of self-fertilised parentage are inferior, even in the first generation, in height and vigour to seedlings of cross-fertilised parentage'. After eleven years of meticulous experimentation and observation, described in this volume, he was ready to publish in 1876 the detailed study which he regarded as a companion volume to his 1862 On the Various Contrivances by which British and Foreign Orchids are Fertilised by Insects. His 'first and most important of the conclusions which may be drawn ... is that cross-fertilisation is generally beneficial, and self-fertilisation injurious': this understanding is of course the basis of all modern plant breeding programmes
The various contrivances by which orchids are fertilised by insects by Charles Darwin( Book )
130 editions published between 1862 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,255 libraries worldwide
In this late 19th-century scientific study, famous English naturalist Charles Darwin refutes the theory that variations of plants in nature are from the design of a great creator. Instead, he theorizes that the fertilisation of plants by insects results in the dominance of successful species
Autobiography by Charles Darwin( Book )

Geological observations on the volcanic islands and parts of South America visited during the voyage of H.M.S. "Beagle" by Charles Darwin( Book )
65 editions published between 1846 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 930 libraries worldwide
First published in 1846, Darwin's Geological Observations made up the third part of his memoir of his voyage on the Beagle during the years 1832-1836. While the first part (1842) focused on the structure and distribution of coral reefs and the second (1844) described the volcanic islands visited during the voyage, this third instalment is devoted exclusively to South America, where Darwin spent the longest period of the expedition. It discusses South America's geological and seismic history, the mineral content of lava and granite, and the deformation of metamorphic rock. Separate chapters cover different geographical areas, and topics include the formation of the East and West Coasts and the pampas, the plains and valleys of Chile, and the structure of the Cordillera. Geological Observations also includes detailed maps of South America and sketches of the terrain

The life of Erasmus Darwin by Charles Darwin( Book )
25 editions published between 1879 and 2011 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
"This book is not a narrative biography, but rather a series of illuminating insights into Erasmus Darwin's life and work, with quotations from letters and candid comments by Charles Darwin
The life and letters of Charles Darwin : including an autobiographical chapter by Charles Darwin( Book )
144 editions published between 1887 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 321 libraries worldwide
"In choosing letters for publication I have been largely guided by the wish to illustrate my father's personal character. But his life was so essentially one of work, that a history of the man could not be written without following closely the career of the author. Thus it comes about that the chief part of the book falls into chapters whose titles correspond to the names of his books. In arranging the letters I have adhered as far as possible to chronological sequence, but the character and variety of his researches make a strictly chronological order an impossibility. It was his habit to work more or less simultaneously at several subjects. Experimental work was often carried on as a refreshment or variety, while books entailing reasoning and the marshalling of large bodies of facts were being written. Moreover, many of his researches were allowed to drop, and only resumed after an interval of years. Thus a rigidly chronological series of letters would present a patchwork of subjects, each of which would be difficult to follow. The Table of Contents will show in what way I have attempted to avoid this result. It will be seen, for instance, that the second volume is not chronologically continuous with the first. Again, in the third volume, the botanical work, which principally occupied my father during the later years of his life, is treated in a separate series of chapters"--Preface.
