One of the ironies of the history of biology is that Darwin did not really explain the origin of new species in The Origin of Species, because he didn't know how to define species. The Origin was in fact concerned mostly with how a single species might change in time, not how one species might proliferate into many. (Futuyma, Douglas J. [Professor of Evolutionary Biology, State University of New York, Stony Brook], Science on Trial: The Case for Evolution, Pantheon: New York NY, 1982, p.152)
