The problem of the inheritance of acquired characters



The problem of the inheritance of acquired characters



Ann Univ Ferrara N S Sez Iii Biol Animale 2(3): 97-118



This is a general historical survey, beginning with brief mention of Lamarck and Darwin, and going on to Weismann, McDougall's experiments contradicted by later workers, Michurin's ideas leading to Lysenko, modern experiments on bacterial transformation and "transduction," Graham Cannon's (1958) criticisms of modern genetical theories, and the idea of "episomes" proposed by Jacob and Wollman (1958). A larger part of the paper is devoted to review of modern discussions of such things as the callosities on ostriches, which appear even in the embryos, and Waddington's experiments on the genetic assimilation of an acquired character [crossveinless] in Drosophila.
