Description:This is the paper that spurred Darwin to finally publicly present his ideas about evolution. Wallace had come to very similar conclusions based on his own observations of biogeography in the south Pacific.

From the website:

Editor Charles H. Smith’s Note: This is the famous “Ternate essay” introducing natural selection that Wallace sent to Charles Darwin in February of 1858. This paper, along with excerpts from two unpublished writings by Darwin, was read before a special meeting of the Linnean Society of London on 1 July 1858, and published on pages 53-62 of Volume 3 of that Society’s Proceedings series.
