Inordinate Fondness for Beetles

Part travelogue, part biography, An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles charts the discoveries of famous naturalist and explorer Alfred Russel Wallace. Born in 1823, Wallace devoted much time to fieldwork, first in the Amazon then in Asia. During his travels he identified what is known as the Wallace Line, which divides the flora and fauna of Asia from that which is a combination of both Australian and Asian origin. He is perhaps most famous for independently developing the theory of evolution due to natural selection. Structured as",conversations around the campfire, based on common travel in the Malay archipelago",, An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles skillfully interweaves tales of Wallace's travels and discoveries in with Paul Sochaczewski's own observations of the region. Offering unique insights into the magic of Southeast Asia, this book will appeal to armchair travellers and experienced globetrotters alike.
