Meet the Characters
Henry Bates (1825 - 1892)
Although not a household name, Bates made crucial contributions to evolutionary biology by discovering the phenomenon of mimicry, now known as Batesian mimicry, whereby a non-toxic species imitates the appearance a toxic one in order to deter predators. The discoveries made by Bates in mimicry put forward the first case for speciation — the changing of a new species from another.
Alfred Wallace (1823 - 1913)
Wallace and Bates were trusted companion of each other. They went to the Amazon together in their early twenties. Beset by illness, Wallace left the Amazon after four years of expedition. Unrelenting, he pushed on to the Malay Archipelago where he continued to study and collect wildlife and independently conceived the theory of evolution by natural selection.
Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882)
Darwin is best known for his theory of natural selection. In1859, he published "On the Origin of Species", which is considered to be as one of the most influential books ever written. Wallace wrote to Darwin about his idea of natural selection while he was collecting specimen in Far East. The findings of Bates about mimicry provided concrete evidence to Darwin's theory.
And don't forget the extraordinary "actors" in nature and their masterly performances!
