THOMAS HENRY HUXLEY REVIEW 2013
In celebration of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913)
Alfred Russel Wallace, OM, FRS, FZS (1823–1913) was a remarkable British naturalist, explorer, geographer and anthropologist, who famously conceived the theory of evolution through natural selection in 1858, independent of Charles Darwin. In honour of the centennial of the year of his death, we have compiled this Virtual Issue of Wallace’s papers published in the Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London, the predecessor of Journal of Zoology. The Issue also includes contributions by other scientists describing Wallace’s collections. Read more
