Chunky wanted to make the peculiar claim that there is no such animal as mainstream evolutionary biology.

Ultimately, Angryoldfatman made my contrary point for me, apparently unawares:
An UNorthodox evolutionary framework would be something like Intelligent Design or Morphogenic Fields. These do not fit in the Theory of Evolution as the term is currently understood.

No kidding. And relative to these alternatives (and Baraminology and Front Loading, two further hopeful guesses earnestly discussed upthread) the paper in question fits neatly within the framework of contemporary evolutionary theory, and utilizes that theory to understand its findings, Chunkdz's concrete exertions notwithstanding.
