Central notions in evolutionary biology are intrinsically topological. This claim is maybe most obvious for the discontinuities associated with punctuated equilibria. Recently, a mathematical framework has been developed that derives the concepts of phenotypic characters and homology from the topological structure of the \emph{phenotype space}. This structure in turn is determined by the genetic operators and their interplay with the properties of the genotype-phenotype map.
