This #WorldBeardDay, a hirsute reminder of the two men jointly credited with the theory of evolution by natural selection. While most people associate only Darwin's name with the theory of evolution, Alfred Russel Wallace (pic 2) had the same revolutionary idea completely independently. Darwin had been working on his theory for 20 years, but was yet to publish. After Wallace wrote to him, the two scientists organised a joint announcement and their theory of evolution by natural selection was co-published in 1858. Darwin published his contentious but now-celebrated book, ‘On the Origin of Species’ the following year. Check out our bio link to learn more about their theory, and why it is still such an important part of our understanding of the natural world: http://bit.ly/NHM-Natural-Selection #NaturalSelection #Evolution #TheoryOfEvolution #HistoryOfNaturalHistory #NaturalHistory #HistoryOfScience #CharlesDarwin #AlfredRusselWallace #Wallace #Darwin #BeardDay #InternationalBeardDay #VictorianMen #VictorianScience #ScientificTheory
