Alfred Russel Wallace

This Catalyst article looks at the work of Alfred Russel Wallace who developed a theory of evolution in parallel with Charles Darwin; they published their findings jointly. As a scientist he was interested in lots of different things, from how different species came into existence to the question of whether ghosts really do exist. His greatest achievement was to come up with a theory of evolution suggesting that natural selection was how new species came into being.
