Abstract

For practical purposes the high correlation for male pairs of paternal first cousins is most significant as a means of detecting the contribution of sex-linked genes, when the male sex is heterogametic. Hitherto ancestral and collateral correlation studies have been made chiefly upon species in...

Journal of Genetics, 1932, 26, pp 417-432
Abstract

The Messenger Lectures given at Cornell University in 1931 have been incorporated, after some expansion, into this book. It provides interesting comparison with Dr Hurst's work reviewed above. The one is a work of synthesis in design and speculation, whilst Professor Morgan's thesis has the same...

The scientific basis of evolution., 1932, pp 286, illustrated pp.
Abstract

Evolution depends upon a certain balance among its factors. There must be gene mutation, but not an excessive rate; there must be selection, not too severe to remove variability, and thus the basis for further advance. Under biparental reproduction a very low rate of mutation balanced by moderate...

Proceedings. 6th Int. Congr. Genet., 1932, 1, pp 356-366
Abstract

The second edition of Plate's Genetics has now been completed, except for the section on special genetics of man and some of the genetically best-known animals, which is reserved for the third volume.
The first volume, after giving a general survey of the phenomena of variation, the role of...

Abstract

It is a sign of the times that such books as the one under review and Morgan's recent Scientific Basis of Evolution should be appearing. The science of Genetics has now over thirty years of research and experimentation behind it. We have come to look upon the gene rather than the cell as the unit...

The Mechanism of Creative Evolution., 1933, pp xxi + 365 pp.
Abstract

The chromosome complex of the pheasant consists of a number of widely divergent elements. The largest tend to lie on the periphery of the equatorial plate, the smaller in the central portion. There are eight pairs of large chromosomes which differ in size and shape and can be identified in all...

Biologicheskii Zhurnal, 1933, 2, pp 33-43
Abstract

The author confesses himself to be not satisfied as to the validity of the multiple factor interpretation of blending inheritance; it remains a hypothesis. He cites the phenomenon of polyploidy; like mutation in an homologous gene of three homologous chromosomes would result in tri-hybrid...

Abstract

The method by which male and female individuals arise has been the subject of much discussion and many theories have been elaborated to account for it, but it was not until the laws of Mendelian inheritance were proved and accepted that a scientific explanation for the determination of sex could be ...

Sex determination., 1933, pp vii + 138 pp.
Abstract

In evolution, periods of isolation alternating with periods of intermingling among groups are necessary for progress and this also holds good in the case of a special science. Early investigators in genetics formed an isolated group and confined their attention to the sorting of the genes, until...
