"On the Origin of the Species" - variation?

Postby Windette » Mon Apr 04, 2011 7:20 am

Has anyone read this? Are "The Origin of the Species" and "On The Origin of the Species" the same thing? Does he say or imply anywhere, the importance of a large gene pool, or high genetic variation in a species, for their survival as a whole? Specifically their potential to evolve regarding this? Thank you. :D

Darwin lived at the same time as Mendel did, but his work was forgotten until beginning of 20th century and the genes were discovered even later, so no, Darwin didn't write anything about genes.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
