Sharing the Credit

In 1859 Mr. Charles Darwin published ‘On the Origin of Species’, an astonishing book at the time. Less well known today is Mr. Alfred Russel Wallace, who had shared his studies with Darwin, and co-authored a paper with Darwin the year before.

Mr. Wallace was a naturalist, botanist, biologist and explorer, mostly in Brazil and SE Asia. He and Mr. Darwin were on the same page about Evolution. Their idea was that all living things had to adapt to the conditions wherever they lived. Makes sense to Us Rhinos; We have had lots of experience with following Nature’s lead.

Back then, Mr. Wallace was not the second-banana to Mr. Darwin. They were respected and respectful Colleagues.
