Biology celebrates two significant jubilee dates in 2009: 200 years from the birth of C. Darwin and 150 years from the publication of his book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, which laid the foundation for the theory of evolution. Since the times of Darwin, evolutionary biology has changed radically. At present, evolution is studied not only at the species but also at the genomic level. This paper deals with advances in the evolutionary biology of the 21st century. Its author is concerned about the striking contrast between advances in biology and the attitude of Russian society towards evolutionary theory
