Notes:

[1] Aleksander Piotr Czekanowski (12 February 1833 – 30 October 1876) was a Polish geologist, paleontologist and explorer of Siberia.
After graduating in 1857 he returned to Kiev where he started working at Siemens and Halske, which was at the time engaged in the construction of a telegraph line from Russia to India.
The work was involved frequent trips which gave him the opportunity to conduct scientific research. In addition to his main work, he also systematised the paleontological collections of the University of Kiev, Ukraine.

Notes:

[O1] This year the Post Authority of Monaco dedicate two stamps to Prince Albert I. Prince Albert I was interested not only in oceanography, but also in the origins of man.
He founded the "Institute for Human Paleontology" (IPH) in Paris that was responsible for a number of archeological digs.
The first scientific establishment of this type in the world, the IPH, situated in Paris, came into being in 1910 under the patronage of Prince Albert I. Establishment of the Institute was the result of Prince Albert I meeting with two of the most famous founders of contemporary prehistoric archaeology, Professor Marcellin Boule and Abbe Henri Breuil.

[O2] Geologically, Monument Valley is a combination of rock layers formed during the Permian and Triassic Periods several hundred million years ago that have been subjected to differential erosion (by which hard rocks erode more slowly than soft rocks). The results can be quite complex and stunningly beautiful. The first time Permian vertebrae remains of prehistoric animals who lived on the territory of Monument Valley more than 300 million years ago, were reported in 1936.

[O3] Two stamps from the "Our Beautiful Continent" stamps set of Australia can be considered as stamps with fossil sites landscapes..
The Flinders Ranges is a semi-arid mountainous landscape. It has rich biodiversity and an exceptional geological record of the dawn of animal life on Earth.
The Gondwana Rainforests are so-named because the fossil record indicates that when Gondwana (ancient continent) existed it was covered by rainforests containing the same kinds of species that are living today.

[O4] "120th Anniversary of The Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology".
Following the Grimaldi cave digs (1895-1902) which he ordered and funded, Prince Albert I founded in the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology in 1902, on the site of the former Government building, to preserve and display all of the finds unearthed in a single location. In 1959, the Museum moved to a new building in the Exotic Garden. The collections displayed tell the story of the major milestones in the evolution of humanity, through the glacial and interglacial periods. Attached to the Government and supported by an international scientific panel, the Museum’s team conducts archaeological digs and laboratory research, and publishes scientific articles, in addition to organising exhibitions and mediation activities.
