Cheats, Liars and Fornicators: Alfred Russel Wallace and Mimicry
Wed 22 February 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT

Steve Jones will talk about how modern biology has built on Wallace's ideas on butterfly mimicry and will talk about the crafty habits of creatures from orchids to ourselves, and about how, beneath every beauty, lies a beast.
