Thanks, Robert Brandon, for identifying source of gene-change
definition of evolution.  The guess at Julian Huxley was off the mark:
- his book Evolution: the Modern Synthesis (which was 1942, not the
'50s) draws heavily from Dobzhansky (as well as from JBSHaldane's "The
Causes of Evolution" which I have recently been studying).  Just to
keep the record straight.
I think I introduced myself a while back; I'm an historian of
systematics at the Univ. of Toronto.
