The cause of this is not far to seek. Darwins Origin of Species appeared in 1859, only four years earlier, and rapidly had its effect in drawing attention to the great problem of the origin of living beings.

The theories of Darwin and Wallace brought to a head and presented in a concrete shape the somewhat vague speculations as to development and evolution which had long been floating in the minds of naturalists. In the actual working out of Darwins great theory it is impossible to overestimate the influence of Lyell. This is made abundantly clear in Darwins letters, and it must never be forgotten that Darwin himself was a geologist. His training in this science enabled him to grasp the import of the facts so ably marshalled by Lyell in the Principles of Geology, a work which, as Professor Judd has clearly shown,* contributed greatly to the advancement of evolutionary theory in general.
