  • question_answer How did Mendel interpret his result to show that traits may be dominant or recessive? Describe briefly.


    Mendel conducted breeding experiments on pea plants:
                He selected pure breed tall and dwarf plants. He cross pollinated these plants. In the \[{{F}_{1}}\] generation obtained only tall plants, tallness is the dominant trait. Then, he produced \[{{F}_{2}}\] generation by selfing of hybrids \[{{F}_{1}}\] generation. He found that 3/4th of the plants were tall and 1/4th were dwarf. The trait which remains hidden in \[{{F}_{1}}\] generation plants is the recessive trait.
