Gregor Mendel is now acclaimed for his discovery of the laws of heredity, but his work remained neglected for many years. This 1902 book by William Bateson was largely responsible for bringing Mendel’s great experimental work, Experiments in Plant Hybridization (1865) to light.

About the Author

William Bateson (1861-1926) was a British geneticist and the first person to use the term genetics to describe the study of heredity. After Hugeo de Vries and Carl Correns rediscovered Gregor Mendel’s work, Bateson popularized the ideas.

Gregor Mendel (1822-1884) was a priest and scientist from Austria. Mendel discovered that inherited traits in pea plants follow certain laws. His work in genetics was not acknowledged until after his death.
