Gregor Mendel: Genetics Pioneer by Lynn Van Gorp, Gorp

Born in 1822, Gregor Mendel grew up enjoying gardening and biology. His experiments with garden peas helped him explain how genetic traits in living things—such as hair color and eye color in humans—are passed from generation to generation. For more information on genetics, read The World of Genetics, another book in the Mission: Science series.
