The Animated Life of A.R. Wallace [7:55]

Description

Alfred Russel Wallace, who is often referred to as the co-discoverer of natural selection, is almost always eclipsed by Charles Darwin.  Although Darwin produced the vast majority of research and evidence for the theory, Wallace led an amazing life and made real contributions to the project.  This video provides an engaging overview of that life and his contributions.

Discussion Questions

  • Who had heard of Wallace before?  What did he do?
  • Would you have gone back to collecting animals after watching months of specimens you had collected go up in smoke?
  • Why is it important to remember the accomplishments of past scientists?

Keywords:  Evolution, Wallace, natural selection, scientific method, scientists, biology
