Mendel on Patterns of Inheritance The year 1859 brought about new thought and change to the way we view our evolution as a species. How we become the people we do and how we receive the traits that are passed down to us from our parents. Charles Darwin brought about this change with his theories of evolution and how we can to be. There were many aspects of Darwin’s Theories that the scientific community could not grasp. However, it was Johann Mendel at the early age of 21 that began to give a more concrete concept on how we evolve and why we receive and carry traits from our parents. Mendel in 1866 with his experimentations of the garden pea plant soon developed the two laws of genetics and what is considered to be the gene of inheritance. Mendel’s work unlike others before him brought about a simple experiment that offered quantization. These simple experiments through cross-breading of traits brought about what is now the First and Second Laws of Heredity.
