Wallace Singapore is a digital reference collection of specimens collected by Alfred Russel Wallace from Singapore in the 19th century. The collection is integrated into “Biodiversity of Singapore” which was initiated and continues to be developed by Prof. Rudolf Meier (Department of Biological Sciences) and Dr. Yuchen Ang (Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum). The database is currently hosted by the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (LKCNHM), National University of Singapore.
Note that Wallace Singapore also includes Wallace specimens from other localities in the Malay Archipelago as long as the same species is known to occur in Singapore.
This project was made possible by Ministry of Education through the AcRF Tier 2 grant “The Natural History of Alfred Russel Wallace”, led by Dr. John van Wyhe and Prof. Rudolf Meier.
