    This poll closed a while ago, but I choose Charles Darwin, because, c'mon, he's Charles Darwin!

    Yeah, this poll unfortunately wasn't as popular or successful as I would have hoped it would be but nevermind.

    I voted Humboldt because actually without him there would have been no Alfred Russell Wallace or Charles Darwin.

    He was the giant upon whose shoulders those later naturalists stood and though I admire them too (Wallace more than Darwin actually) I just have a greater admiration for Humboldt.
