It's an opinion piece aimed at an audience that probably hasn't had biology since high school.

There seems to be a widespread belief that evolution is all about Darwin, just like a lot of people think physics is all about Einstein. People are conditioned to believe that great achievements result from heroic individual accomplishments, without recognizing that thousands contribute to the piece-by-piece development of scientific knowledge. It would be nice if evolutionary theory could lose its popular connection to a 19th Century eccentric (as terrific as he was) and instead be associated with scientists toiling in the trenches of numerous different fields and challenging each other's findings.
