THE OTHER DARWIN:
The Remarkable Life and Times of Alfred
Alfred Russel Wallace was an amazing 19th century
naturalist who with Darwin co-discovered the
principle of natural selection. The largely self-taught
Wallace launched an audacious plan as a teenager
to explore the tropics and solve the mystery of the
origin of species. He actually realized his plan and
spent four years collecting in Amazonia only to lose
nearly all of his specimens and notebooks (and nearly
his life) when the ship burned and sank on the return trip home. Undaunted,
Wallace headed off to southeast Asia just a year later, spending a further eight
years traveling and collecting in the Malay Archipelago, modern-day Indonesia.
It was here that Wallace made his greatest discoveries. Widely considered the
father of the science of biogeography, Wallace discovered the line of demarcation between the zoological provinces of Indo-Australia and Asia,
today known as the Wallace Line, and he scooped Darwin by conceiving of
evolution by natural selection while in a malarial fever. By the end of his long
life, in 1913, Wallace was probably the most famous scientist in the world, yet
today he is barely remembered as a footnote to Darwin.
Presenter: James Costa, Ph.D., has been a popular CLE lecturer for several years. He
is Director of the Highlands Biological Station and Professor of Biology at Western
Carolina University. His recently published book is titled Darwin, The Annotated
