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 [[Biological Species Concept]]. His theory of [[Parapatric Speciation]] has become widely accepted as the standard mode of speciation, and is the basis of the theory of [[Punctuated Equillibrium]]. Furthermore, his writings reflect, not only a technical expertise in biological subjects, but a broad and penetrating understanding of the deeper philosophical issues involved.
