ABSTRACT
This chapter discusses the reasons behind the hereditary characteristics of individuals. The laws of heredity were discovered by an Austrian monk named Gregor Mendel. By crossing plants with different traits, such as green pods and yellow pods, Mendel deduced that traits are passed along from one generation to the next in tiny little packages, called genes.
