    Operational Unit in Evolution. It has been assumed that the operational unit in evolution, that is, the master with his slave, has a morphological correlate in the chromomere. It may be preferable at the moment not to implicate a certain chromosomal structure as an obligatory correlate in view of the relative lack of knowledge about chromosomal fine structure in higher species. I therefore suggest that the proposed unit be called the evolvon.
