Abstract

The impact of entomology on some of Charles Darwin's thought processes are demonstrated via direct quotations concerning leaf beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) made by Darwin in his well documented correspondence from 1821 to 1967. Some aspects of chrysomelid natural history, especially the use of genitalia to separate species, contributed to his theories on speciation, sexual selection, and biogeography.
