Augustin Pyramus de Candolle (1778 – 1841) was a Swiss botanist. de Candolle's botanical career began at an herbarium, where within a couple of years de Candolle had established a new botanical genus. He went on to document hundreds of plant families and create a new natural plant classification system. Although de Candolle's main focus was botany, he also contributed to related fields such as phytogeography, agronomy, paleontology, medical botany, and economic botany. Candolle originated the idea of "Nature's war", which influenced Charles Darwin and the principle of natural selection.; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.
