About this Item: Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013. 1st edition. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dust-wrapper. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Physical description; xxxi, 319 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates: illustrations (some color), maps (some color); 24 cmIncludes bibliographical references and index. Summary; This volume brings together the letters of the great Victorian naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) during his famous travels of 1854-62 in the Malay Archipelago (now Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia), which led him to come independently to the same conclusion as Charles Darwin: that evolution occurs through natural selection. Beautifully written, they are filled with lavish descriptions of the remote regions he explored, the peoples, and fascinating details of the many new species of mammals, birds, and insects he discovered during his time there. John van Wyhe and Kees Rookmaaker present new transcriptions of each of the letters, including recently discovered letters that shed light on the voyage and on questions such as Wallace's reluctance to publish on evolution, and why he famously chose to write to Darwin rather than to send his work to a journal directly. A revised account of Wallace's itinerary based on new research by the editors forms part of an introduction that sets the context of the voyage, and the volume includes full notes to all letters. Together the letters form a remarkable and vivid document of one of the most important journeys of the 19th century by a great Victorian naturalist. Subjects; Wallace, Alfred Russel 1823-1913.

About this Item: Uitgeverij Atlas, Amsterdam / Antwerpen, 2009. Paperback/garenloos. Condition: Net exemplaar. 1e druk. Dit boekje bevat de tekst van twee hoofdstukken uit 'My life- a record of events and opinions' (1905). Vertaald door Ruud Rook. Omslagillustratie: 'Semioptera wallacii (Wallace-paradijsvogel)'. Omslagontwerp: Zeno. Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 - 1913) was een Brits natuuronderzoeker, geograaf, antropoloog en bioloog (entomoloog). Het meest bekend is hij geworden door het onafhankelijk ontwikkelen van een evolutietheorie. Tijdens zijn jarenlange reis door Indonesië die zou leiden tot 'Het Maleise eilandenrijk', ontwikkelde Alfred Russel Wallace geheel onafhankelijk van Darwin een evolutietheorie. Deze fragmenten uit zijn autobiografie beschrijven de wijze waarop Wallace tot zijn theorie kwam. Hij licht in brieven aan o.a. Henry Walter Bates toe waarom hij de eer van de theorie aan Darwin laat. Met noten. 2 illustraties. Kaartvan het Maleise eilandenrijk: Hester Schaap. 60 pag. Size: 18cmx11cm.

Denn bereits 1858, ein Jahr vor Erscheinen Über die Entstehung der Arten Darwins, fertigt Wallace sein Ternate-Manuskript zu den Mechanismen der Evolution an die Ähnlichkeiten zu Darwins Überlegungen sind verblüffend.

Bei seinen Forschungen im Malayischen Archipel stellt er zudem die Hypothese einer biogeographischen Grenze (heute Wallace-Linie) auf, die die Übergangszone zwischen asiatischer und australischer Fauna markiert.

About this Item: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Alfred Russel Wallace is best known as the codiscoverer, with Charles Darwin, of natural selection, but he was also history s foremost tropical naturalist and the father of biogeography, the modern study of the geographical basis of biological diversity. Island Life has long been considered one of his most important works. In it he extends studies on the influence of the glacial epochs on organismal distribution patterns and the characteristics of island biogeography, a topic as vibrant and actively studied today as it was in 1880. The book includes history s first theory of continental glaciation based on a combination of geographical and astronomical causes, a discussion of island classification, and a survey of worldwide island faunas and floras. The year 2013 will mark the centennial of Wallace s death and will see a host of symposia and reflections on Wallace s contributions to evolution and natural history. This reissue of the first edition of Island Life , with a foreword by David Quammen and an extensive introduction by Lawrence R. Heaney, who has spent over three decades studying island biogeography in Southeast Asia, makes this essential and foundational reference available and accessible once again.

About this Item: LOS LIBROS DE LA CATARATA, 2009. Rústica (Tapa blanda). Condition: Nuevo. Dust Jacket Condition: Nuevo. El primero de julio de 1858 fue un día en el que en opinión de J.J. Bennett, secretario de la Sociedad Linneana de Londres, no pasó nada relevante para el desarrollo y porvenir de la ciencia. Ese primero de julio se presentaron tres escritos, a nombre de los naturalistas ingleses Charles Darwin y Alfred Russel Wallace, en los que de manera concreta se daban a conocer las ideas que han revolucionado el pensamiento sobre la naturaleza orgánica y han impactado en diversas esferas de la ciencia y del pensamiento humano: la teoría de la evolución por medio de la variación y la selección natural. Estos tres escritos, aunque pequeños en extensión, son una clara muestra de los principales conceptos de las explicaciones sobre la transformación de las especies tanto de Darwin como de Wallace, conceptos que presentamos en esta traducción con la intención de que los lectores de habla hispana tengan al alcance los escritos que abrieron el largo camino de la teoría de la selección natural. Éste fue el inicio de un profundo cambio de pensamiento en la biología, que se vio concretado con la publicación de El Origen de las especies, obra cumbre de Darwin, en la que se amplía la evidencia sobre la transformación de las especies por selección natural. 180 LIBRO.
