How Mendel Got Started

How Mendel Got Started

Mendel's attraction to research was based on his love of nature.

He was not only interested in plants, but also in meteorology and theories of evolution.

Mendel often wondered how plants obtained atypical characteristics.

Slide 7

The Birth of the idea: Heredity

The Birth of the idea: Heredity

On a walk around the monastery, he found an atypical variety of an ornamental plant.

He took it and planted it next to the typical variety.

He grew their progeny side by side to see if there would be any approximation of the traits passed on to the next generation.

This experiment was "designed to support or to illustrate Lamarck's views concerning the influence of environment upon plants.

He found that the plants' respective offspring retained the essential traits of the parents, and therefore were not influenced by the environment.

Slide 8

Mendel's research reflected his personality.

Mendel's research reflected his personality.

Once he crossed peas and mice of different varieties "for the fun of the thing," and the phenomena of dominance and segregation "forced themselves upon notice."
