Our June issue is devoted to papers arising from a meeting of the Linnean Society of London on the role of behaviour in evolution, organized by Dick Vane-Wright.

Four were written by Wallace himself and represent but a fraction of his prolific output, a larger sample of which can be accessed from the 'The Alfred Russel Wallace Page'.
