Yesterday the journal Genetics published our article about Mendel’s reading of Darwin’s Origin of Species in a German translation and his use of some of the ideas in his report on his experiments with hybridity in peas. The journal also published our translation of the original article. The last couple of paragraphs especially show evidence of Darwin’s influence on Mendel’s thought.
Dan Fairbanks is the scientist. I am the Germanist who came along for what was a very interesting ride.
