ErnstMayr

One of the 20th century's leading evolutionary BiologistS. His work contributed to the conceptual revolution that led to the synthesis of Mendelian GeneticS and Darwinian EvolutioN, and to the development of the BiologicalSpeciesCconcept. His theory of ParapatricSpeciation has become widely accepted as the standard mode of speciation, and is the basis of the theory of PunctuatedEquillibrium. Furthermore, his writings reflect, not only a technical expertise in biological subjects, but a broad and penetrating understanding of the deeper philosophical issues involved.
