Caption: A portrait of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913), British naturalist. Wallace organised expeditions to the Amazon and Malaysia and was the first European to see orang-utans in the wild. Wallace collected many specimens and founded the study of the geographical distribution of animals (biogeography). He formulated (independent of Charles Darwin) the theory of natural selection as a mechanism for the origin of species. He and Darwin presented their results in a joint paper in 1858 before the Linnean Society. New York Public LIbrary Picture Collection. New York Public LIbrary Picture Collection.
