Experiments in Plant Hybridisation

Book cover

Experiments in Plant Hybridisation by Gregor Mendel is a groundbreaking work in the field of genetics that has had a lasting impact on the scientific community. Mendel's meticulous experiments with pea plants paved the way for our modern understanding of heredity and the passing on of traits from one generation to the next.

Through careful observation and statistical analysis, Mendel was able to uncover the principles of inheritance that govern the transmission of genetic information. His work laid the foundation for the field of genetics, and his discoveries are still studied and celebrated today.

Mendel's clear and logical presentation of his findings, along with his meticulous attention to detail, make Experiments in Plant Hybridisation a timeless classic in the field of biology. Anyone with an interest in genetics or the history of science will find this book both informative and inspiring. Mendel's work continues to shape our understanding of the natural world, making Experiments in Plant Hybridisation a must-read for anyone interested in the fascinating world of genetics.

Book Description:
Gregor Mendel (1822 - 1884) was an Augustinian monk in the St. Thomas monastery in Brno. His seminal paper "Experiments on Plant Hybridization" presents his results of studying genetic traits in pea plants. It is the ground breaking work on inheritance, being the first to differentiate between dominant and recessive genetic traits. His work was long ignored and deemed controversial, however, at its rediscovery at the turn to the 20th century, it earned Gregor Mendel the title "father of modern genetics".
