Sir Francis "Frank" Darwin was born in Down House, Downe, Kent, England. He was an English botanist. He was a son of the British naturalist and scientist Charles Darwin. He graduated in natural sciences from Trinity College, Cambridge in 1870. He then studied medicine at St George's Medical School, London, earning an MB in 1875, but did not practice medicine. He worked with his father on experiments dealing with plant movements, specifically phototropism and they co-authored The Power of Movement in Plants. Their experiments showed that the coleoptile of a young grass seedling directs its growth toward the light by comparing the responses of seedlings with covered and uncovered coleoptiles. These observations would later lead to the discovery of auxin.
