Alfred russel wallace's legacy and the impact of biogeography on microbiology

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Alfred Russel Wallace was one of the 19th Century’s greatest field biologists, yet his scientific legacy is much farther reaching than it would first appear to the casual observer. A great supporter of Darwin throughout his life, following the co-discovery of natural selection, he studied biology in a much wider context, making seminal contributions to evolutionary biology, ecology and biogeography.
