Charles DarwinDarwin began studying Desmodium gyrans or Hedysarum, as they occasionally named it and also the movements of the little leaflets around 1855, after borrowing one of Hooker’s samples. “I do hope it isn't really precious,” Darwin wrote, thanking Hooker for that loan, “for, as I told you, it is for probably a most foolish purpose. I read somewhere that no plant closes its leaves so promptly in darkness, and I want to cover it up daily for half an hour, and see if I can teach it to close by itself.” More than 20 years later, Darwin was still trying.”
