IT may be said at once that the facts in this volume represent perhaps the most compen-dious and extensive experimental treatment of hereditary phenomena which has yet been accom-plished in one limited group of organisms, and as such it deserves careful study by all students of genetics. The book is an outgrowth and further development of the views expressed by de Vries in “Die Mutationstheorie” (1901–03). Those views were, as is well known, founded chiefly upon the author's experiments with Oenothera, the muta-tion theory of sudden germinal changes being also based to some extent upon his conception of intra-cellular pangenesis.
