2013 sees the centenary of the death of Alfred Russel Wallace, one of several originators of theories of evolution by natural selection who weren’t called Charles Darwin.
In an attempt to right the wrong of attributing the theory of evolution by natural selection to only one man (Darwin), a number of events are planned during this centenary year to bring Wallace’s name to the fore, allowing him to stand alongside his distinguished contemporary.
Details about the events, under the umbrella title of Wallace100, can be found at Wallace100, the Natural History Museum, London.
The Alfred Russel Wallace caricature below shows Wallace as an ape, in a parody of the famous caricature of Charles Darwin. This image is just a detail of the whole cartoon, which can be seen here:
