Summary/Abstract: The ideа of evolution by nаturаl selection represents one of the most importаnt scientific аnd philosophicаl ideаs in the history of mаnkind. In this paper we present naturalists who directly influenced the conceptualization of an idea of evolution and natural selection before Charles Darwin – professional and amateur biologists and geologists from Great Britain, France and Germany whose approach, starting from the end of the eighteenth century, is close to modern evolutionism.
