The forgotten evolutionist

The man who might have been Darwin – AR Wallace – is the subject of a fascinating new exhibition at Cambridge University’s Museum of Zoology from tomorrow until February 2010.

But this new exhibition by Fred Langford Edwards at the Downing Street museum aims to cast new light on Wallace’s theories of natural selection and evolution.
