The laws of heredity are ascribed to Gregor Mendel (1822-1884) who carried out his experiments with plant crossing while an abbot at the monastery in Brno in what is now the Czech Republic. Mendel's hypothesis, which he later proved in experiments, lead to the discovery of the basic mechanisms of heredity, which now underpin much of modern genetics. This is the first systematic study of documents and publications relating to Gregor Mendel. Mendel's research, and his achievements are examined in their social and cultural context. This book is intended for all geneticists interested in the history of their subject and all scientists with a general interest in the history of science.
