In , he brought the idea of natural selection to the attention of the world in his best-selling book, On the Origin of Species.

Genetics is the study of how heritable traits are transmitted from parents to offspring. The theory of natural selection states that variations occur, but Charles Darwin couldn't explain : Mary Bagley. The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection is a book by Ronald Fisher which combines Mendelian genetics with Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection, with Fisher being the first to argue that "Mendelism therefore validates Darwinism" and stating with regard to mutations that "The vast majority of large mutations are deleterious; small mutations are both far more frequent and Author: Ronald Fisher. natural selection on a single gene- leads to changes in allele frequencies and thus leads to evolution natural selection on a polygenic trait- affects the distribution of phenotypes in three ways 1. directional selection- when individuals at one end of the curve hack a higher fitness. How genes are not the only basis of heredity--and what this means for evolution, human life, and disease For much of the twentieth century it was assumed that genes alone mediate the transmission of biological information across generations and /5(17).
