Recent Progress in the Study of Variation, Heredity and Evolution

Article metrics


THE labours of a new school of biologists, ably represented in this country by a band of energetic workers at Cambridge of whom the author of the present book is not the least distinguished, have been of great service both direct and indirect to the study of evolutionary method. It was perhaps to be expected that in the first flush of enthusiasm caused by the re-discovery of an important generalisation like Mendel's, judgments should be formed and statements made some of which may seem to pass the bounds of scientific caution; but signs are not wanting that a more restrained attitude is beginning to prevail, and it is a healthy symptom that the free use of the experimental method, rather than mere academic discussion, characterises the work of the new evolutionists.
