PEREZ, Aristóbulo; GUTIERREZ, Germán  and  SEGURA, Alejandro. Behavioral observations in Darwin's voyage of the Beagle. Rev. Latinoam. Psicol. [online]. 2007, vol.39, n.3, pp.503-521. ISSN 0120-0534.

Although Darwin's writings have been analyzed in detail by science historians, the role of behavior in the development of the theory of evolution has not been properly addressed. In this study we select, describe and analyze behavioral observations by Darwin during the Voyage of the Beagle. The context of the voyage, its route, objectives, and characteristics are presented. A classification of different types of observations on diverse types of behavior in multiple species is proposed.

Keywords : Darwin; Voyage of the Beagle; Behavior.
