Experiments on intervarietal transplantations of ovaries in rabbits, hens, and pigs showed that almost all progeny obtained from mothers-recipients of ovaries of other breeds had an intermediate character when crossed with males of the donor breed. Splitting was observed in the second generation. Denervation of ovaries, administration of a single large dose of dry thyroid gland, and the addition of 6-methyl-thiouracyl to the chicks diet confirmed that physiological influence on the organism leads to the inheritance of the properties acquired under their influence.
