Ian Burnet — Where Australia Collides with Asia: Banks, Wallace & Darwin

Ian Burnet returns to the SMSA to talk about his latest book, Where Australia Collides with Asia:

Ian will discuss the epic voyages of natural history of Continent Australia and the British naturalists Joseph Banks, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. Each of these naturalists made huge contribution to our understanding of the unique flora and fauna of Australia, the effect of geological forces on the diversity of life forms in the natural world, and the origin of species.

Ian has used their original diaries, letters and publications to tell a remarkable story of natural history and adventure.
