While at Cambridge, he came under the intellectual influence of scientific minds such as William Whewell and John Stevens Henslow which (combined with his interest in collecting beetles, which was encouraged by his cousin, William Darwin Fox) resulted in him pursuing natural history.
After taking his degree with honors, Darwin stayed at Cambridge for further studies in geology, where he proved particularly adept.

The Darwin Core is primarily based on taxa, their occurrence in nature as documented by observations, specimens, samples, and related information.
Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual's ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.
Also called Darwinian theory, it originally included the broad concepts of transmutation of species or of evolution which gained general scientific acceptance after Darwin published On the Origin of Species in 1859, including concepts which predated Darwin's theories.
It subsequently referred to the specific concepts of natural selection, the Weismann barrier, or the central dogma of molecular biology.
Though the term usually refers strictly to biological evolution, creationists have appropriated it to refer to the origin of life, and it has even been applied to concepts of cosmic evolution, both of which have no connection to Darwin's work.Charles Robert Darwin (February 12, 1809 - April 19, 1882) was a revolutionary British geologist and naturalist who laid the foundation for both the modern theory of evolution and the principle of common descent with his proposal of natural selection as a mechanism. Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England, the fifth of six children of Robert and Susannah Darwin ( Wedgwood), and the grandson of Erasmus Darwin, and of Josiah Wedgwood.
