Reading a book about Darwin’s “Theory of Elevation”. Very interesting. Anyone else a Darwin fan?

Cheers, Dave.

re: Darwin Fans?

Hi Dave -

I'm a biologist so its almost a job requirement. Very interesting man with some real insights who sat on his ideas for years for concern for their implications and the first person to apply population models to the natural world. Worked out most of the tenets of evolution without any knowledge of genetics. Also featured in plasticine form in the rather fun and silly "Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!"

BTW I haven't come across his work on elevation but it sounds interestingHappy

re: Darwin Fans?

Of course any mention of Darwin and his famous theory should also mention Alfred Russel Wallace, a true collector who certainly forced Darwin's hand when it came to publishing.

It's a shame he isn't shown on many stamps. Is the one below the only one?
