The Malay Archipelago is an El Dorado for naturalists. Even before Charles Darwin published his theory on the origin of species, the riches of the islands once led a certain Alfred Russel Wallace to the answer to the question: Where does the abundance of species come from? Which developed eventually into the question of all questions: Where do we come from?
The archipelago with its unusual inhabitants helped Alfred Russel Wallace to reach conclusions that would change the world. Until today this world emanates a special fascination. In Borneo and Sulawesi Dirk Steffens traces back the footsteps of Alfred Russel Wallace.
