Genetics and the Origin of Species

"Genetics and the Origin of Species" (ISBN 0-231-05475-0) is a 1937 book by the Ukrainian-American evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky and one of the important books of the modern evolutionary synthesis. A third edition was published in 1951.

Sixty years after its publication, the National Academy of Sciences commissioned a book entitled "Genetics and the Origin of Species: From Darwin to Molecular Biology 60 Years After Dobzhansky".

It was also included in the 1990 edition of "Great Books of the Western World", placing it with Charles Darwin's two great works "The Origin of Species" and "the Descent of Man".
