First Sentence

In a famous synecdoche, Dobzhansky (1951) once defined evolution as "a change in the genetic composition of populations" (p. 16), an epigram that should not be mistaken for the claim that everything worth saying about evolution is contained in statements about genes, although from reading Dobzhansky's own work, it is a mistake that might be easy to make.
