An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles


Part travelogue, part biography, An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles charts the discoveries of famous naturalist and explorer Alfred Russel Wallace. Born in 1823, Wallace devoted much time to fieldwork, first in the Amazon then in Asia. During his travels he identified what is known as the Wallace Line, which divides the flora and fauna of Asia from that which is a combination of both Australian and Asian origin. He is perhaps most famous for independently developing the theory of evolution due to natural selection.
