To answer your original question, no, I don't think it is a typo. I don't think he retyped the citation in toto, people cut and paste. Otherwise you'd have to argue he made the typo once and then cut and pasted the typo later.

However, there is also the argument that he doesn't know the difference. In the quoted paragraph, Bergman attempts to support a position about gene duplication with a quote about genome duplication.

Are gene duplication and genome duplication the same thing? Obviously not, since they happen by different processes and at different rates. FL's analogy fails, or fails to realize that a book is more than a stack of pages.
