I noticed in the "Legacy and historical perception" section of this article that a sentence within it is not neutral. It states, "He was undoubtedly one of the greatest natural history explorers of the 19th century." [1] I think the sentence could be reconstructed in a way that gets the point across that his achievements were in fact significant, yet only presents facts. Something along the lines of "Wallace had many significant achievements and made many discoveries, making him a prominent natural history explorer during his time," which still ties into the following sentence? --Jldgx6 (talk) 18:51, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
