Topic: Apocalypse now! Evolution discovered in 1850s South East Asia
Speaker: Dr. John van Wyhe
I am writing a semi-pop book on A.R Wallace's journey to Singapore and South East Asia, between 1854-1862, where he discovered evolution (independently of Darwin). I will discuss the outline of the book as I currently envision it and how the book continues to evolve and some sneak peaks at some new discoveries. The writing and research for the book are ongoing day by day so this is very much a work in progress!
