Mendel
noted how characteristics in plants were passed on from one generation to the next
2 of 7
Mendel
He had shown that the height characteristic in pea plants was determined by separately inherited "hereditary units" passed on from each parent
3 of 7
Mendel
Reached three important conclusions
4 of 7
Mendel 1st conclusion
Characteristics in plants are determined by "hereditary units"
5 of 7
Mendel 2nd conclusion
Hereditary units are passed on from both parents, one unit from each parent

Mendel 3rd conclusion
Hereditary units can be dominant or recessive - if an individual has both the dominant and the recessive unit for a characteristic, the dominant characteristic will be expressed
