Regarding Swiss Family de Candolle. The patriarch of this Swiss botanical dynasty, Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle, originated the idea of plant species “warring with each other.” English naturalist Charles Darwin studied de Candolle’s work, which helped him develop his own broader concept of natural selection.
