Wallace’s Line

Alfred Russel Wallace formulated his ideas on evolution by natural selection whilst observing and collecting wildlife in the islands of Indonesia. He noticed the sudden difference in bird families he encountered when he sailed some thirty kilometres east off Bali and landed on Lombok. On Bali the birds were clearly related to those of the larger islands of Java and Sumatra and mainland Malaysia. On Lombok the birds were clearly related to those of New Guinea and Australia. He marked the channel between Bali and Lombok as the divide between two great zoogeographic regions, the Oriental and Australian. In his honour this dividing line, which extends northward between Borneo and Sulawesi, is still referred to today as Wallace's Line .
