An adventurous biologist could once bank on finding new species by simply travelling to some part of the world little known to science. Darwin’s famous voyage round the world produced many species new to science, many of which bear the scientific name Somethingorother darwinii.The article explains how there is much still to be discovered beneath our feet.
