Summary

Summary

While serving as a monk in an Austrian monastery, Gregor Mendel conducted experiments on plants in the garden, which lead to his discoveries about heredity. Often called the father of genetics, Mendel was the first person to discover the basic principles of heredity, which describe how different traits, such as height and hair color, are passed on from generation to generation.
