Wallace Online project launched today


John van Wyhe, editor of the Darwin Online project, today announced the opening of the Wallace Online project, three years in the making.

Alfred Russell Wallace (1823-1913) is well-known as a co-discoverer, with Charles Darwin, of the theory of descent with modification from common ancestors by natural selection. Wallace was also of major importance for the development of ecology, particularly through his extensive explorations of southeast Asia and Malaysia (cf. Wyhe’s biographical essay).

The University of Oklahoma Libraries is glad to announce its partnership with the Wallace Online project. The History of Science Collections has contributed the following books:

Also, the History of Science Collections is the leading external contributor to Darwin Online, contributing 40 titles to that project (see related post).
