By the mid 19th Century biologists had a big problem to solve - how
does heredity work? Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and his cousin
Francis Galton (1822-1911) wanted to know because their famous
books, The Origin of Species by Natural Selection and Hereditary
Genius, only made sense if they understood the basis of
inheritance. A lone genius, Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), worked on
the inherited of features in hybrids of the edible pea for 8 years,
presenting a correct solution in 1865. He was a Catholic monk,
priest and later Abbot in the Augustinian Monastery of Brunn, near
Vienna. He was able to define the 'gene' and to reveal some of its
fundamental properties. It is extraordinary that the talented
British team involved in this research, including Charles Darwin,
Francis Galton, George Romanes and Karl Pearson all failed to
arrive at the truth and this book attempts to explain why.
