Abstract

ALTHOUGH I do not wish to defend Dr. Annandale's theoretical views, or to maintain that his evidence for his conclusions was sufficient, I feel tempted to make some comments on Mr. J. S. Huxley's letter in the issue of NATURE for June 7. First, I should like to point out that Mr. Dover was using an unfortunate expression in writing that “some inherited characters at least are persistent.” It is generally agreed that all inherited characters are more or less persistent. It would seem that Mr. Dover meant that some effects of environment are inherited.
