Bio Notes on ch. 11.1-11.3
-Mendel used pea plants to back up Darwin's evolutionary theory that traits are passed on, and cannot
be blended out
-Mendel grew peas for a hobby, and discovered that he could change the traits by cross-pollenating

Key concepts of Mitosis:
Sexual reproduction proceeds through three events: meiosis, gamete formation, and fertilization.
Sperm and eggs are gametes.
Meiosis, a nuclear division mechanism, occurs only in cells s
