Henry Walter Bates

Henry Walter Bates (8. února 1825 Leicester16. února 1892 Londýn) byl anglický přírodovědec a objevitel, který se jako první zabýval mimikry u zvířat. Nejvíce se proslavil výpravou do Amazonie s Alfredem Russelem Wallacem v roce 1848. Wallace se vrátil v roce 1852, ale přišel o svou sbírku při ztroskotání lodi. Když se Bates vrátil v roce 1859 po dvanácti letech domů, přivezl přes 14 000 druhů (převážně hmyzu) z nichž 8 000 bylo pro vědu nových.[1]

It gives a weak account of Bates' work on mimicry, says nothing about Müller, and remarks about Wallace are undistinguished. It is good on Bates' early life and his marriage, and on the travel aspects of the Amazon. The author dismisses Bates' later life too abruptly]
