Sunday Stamps: Science

 I am happy to join in this week!

This is a stamp I have shared before, but perfect for today.  A stamp from Poland:

Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882) is perhaps most famous for his book the On Origin of Species but he wrote many other works. According to Wikipedia "His five-year voyage on HMS Beagle established him as an eminent geologist whose observations and theories supported Charles Lyell's uniformitarian ideas, and publication of his journal of the voyage made him famous as a popular author."..."In 1871 he examined human evolution and sexual selection in The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex, followed by The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. His research on plants was published in a series of books, and in his final book, he examined earthworms and their effect on soil." Yes earthworms.  He is buried in Westminster Abbey.

This portrait is well know even though the stamp is new to me.

Its always fascinated me that Darwin studied earthworms for decades right up to his eventually demise.
