I@ Weekly Sctence byDoLJglasZclark A Tale of Two Theories We're well ware of Charles Darwin anl his theo- ry of natural selection which he published in his landmark 1859 book, On the Evolution of Species. But he was not the only one to develop this theory. Similar ideas were also being developed during this time by Alfred Wallace, a self-educated naturalist from Wales. Starting in 1848, Wallace spent four years in the Amazon on an expedition he had organized to collect specimens for rich collectors and museums. As luck would have it, his return ship caught fire and sank. He spent the next ten days at sea in an open boat before being res- cued. Unfortunately, almost all his specimens were lost. And though he was disheart- ened and vowed to never travel again, two years later he was off to the East Indies on an incredible odyssey that would consume him for the next eight years as he amassed over 125,000 speci- mens. During this time he identified the dividing line between Asian and Australian fauna which is known as the "Wallace Line", prompting some to dub him the father of biogeography. In 1855, Wallace put together some of his ideas and discoveries in a paper that outlined the principles of evolution. Darwin was ini- tially unimpressed after read- ing the paper, but it did prompt him to start putting together his own book on evolution. In 1858, Wallace sent another paper to Darwin. Although he was weak with malaria, he had experienced an epiphany regarding natu- ral selection: that because populations would always outgrow their food supply, hunger and famine was unavoidable, but those that were best-suited to deal with such a situation would sur- vive and pass on their good traits to future generations. Darwin could no wait no longer. He took Wallace's paper and an outline for his Notice to Walnut Grove & area subscribers & readers A drop box for various news items is located at the...

A year later, with Wallace still in Malaysia, Origin was finally published. When Wallace eventually found out that his paper had been published without his knowledge, he was happy to have been included with the more-famous Darwin. Wallace would return to England in 1862 and finally go to meet Darwin. Some have tried to claim over the year that Darwin stole ideas from Wallace or that there was a conspiracy to deprive Wallace of the credit he was due for his contributions to evolution, but these are with- out merit. Wallace was to be one of the most loyal defend- ers of Darwin's Origin. He wrote Darwinism, which explained and defended the theory of natural selection and became his best-known work. And while today we consider them cofounders of evolution, each had their own approach. For example, Darwin emphasized competi- tion between members of the same species to survive and reproduce, while Wallace emphasized species adapta- tion as a result of environ- mental pressures. Throughout Darwin's life they remain on friendly terms, correspond- ing and discussing evolution until Darwin's death in 1882. 1) True or false: Wallace wrote the book Darwinism. 2) The division between Asian and Australian fauna is called the a) Darwin Division b) Darwin- Wallace Region c) Wallace Area d) Wallace Line 3) True or false: Darwin stole ideas from Wallace. 4) Natural selection is a key mechanism of 5) Some consider Wallace the father of Answers on page 7 Copyright (C) 2011 Weekly Science Quiz All rights reserved.
