Artistically differing from the actual events, it is a film, which convincingly uses the visual medium to portray stress and mental illness within one person's mind. The storyline supplants auditory symptoms with visual delusions to narrate the story of the paranoid schizophrenia developed by John Forbes Nash, a Nobel Laureate in Economics. It was an illness, which had been intensified by the anxiety felt by Nash, about the pain suffered by his wife and friends due to his mental condition. Even as he took medication to suppress the symptoms, Nash is shown returning to normal life by becoming self aware.
The first zoological article describes how the author had a meeting with Wallace s two grandsons. He then gives a detailed account of the correspondence between Wallace and Darwin and goes on to discuss the expedition that Bates and Wallace made to the Amazon, noting Wallace s comments in a letter to Bates that your collections and my own will furnish most valuable material to illustrate and prove the universal applicability of the hypothesis that the connection between the succession of affinities and the geographical distribution of the group, worked out species by species, has never yet been shown as we shall be able to show it.
Finally the author discusses the evidence that Darwin may have received Wallace s letter earlier than the 18 th June, or that it may have arrived two weeks earlier viz about the 3 rd June. Examination of the mail boat schedules by Brooks suggested to him that the letter might have arrived as early as the 28 th or 29 th May.
The author concludes that Wallace s 4 th January letter to Bates is the key to why Wallace wrote to Darwin. The second zoological article discusses the origin of Linnaeus term officinalis. The author notes that some seventy-seven substances of animal origin continue to be used in traditional medicine to this day.
He deals with the medical uses of corals, pointing out that saprophytols extracted from Pacific corals have been shown to have anti-cancer characteristics, while other medicinal preparations obtained from cuttlefish have been used by Chinese healers for thousands of years.
He concludes with sponges recorded as plants by Linnaeus pointing out that of the eleven species noted in the Systema Spongia officinal have both internal and external medicinal use. The author finally mentions the woodlouse Oniscus armadillo L.
The botanical paper, by contrast, gives an account of the life and works of the Rev. John Lightfoot who was born in Newent, Gloucestershire.
He was then appointed perpetual curate at Colnbrook, Middlesex. The first meeting of our Society took place on 26 th Februarybut sadly Lightfoot died of a stroke a few days earlier, on 21 st February, at the age of He was buried at St Laurence, Cowley, Middlesex.
His many travels resulted in the production of his Flora Scotia in which he recorded some plants, 85 of which were algae. There are no algae mentioned in his journeys to Wales or the West Country.
The article concludes with a list of Lightfoot s new binomials, some nine or ten in number. As always, he was eloquent and charismatic, taking many questions after his beautifully illustrated and truly sincere presentation.
Building on an earlier review at the Society a decade ago, we held a joint meeting with the Chagos Conservation Trust in Novemberpresenting highlights from research during the decade, which have resulted in the government declaring the Chagos Archipelago the world s largest fully no-take marine protected area allkm 2.
Sadly, due to ill-health, Jim Endersby was unable to give the Founder s Day lecture on Joseph Hooker on 2 nd December, but Sandy Knapp from the Natural History Museum stepped into the breach and gave a lively presentation called: Getting natural history to its users across the centuries: It s all change on the Society front firstly the Bye-laws have been updated to reflect that there are not just two kingdoms animal and plant in the natural world.
