Mendel

  • The paper describing Mendel's results with pea.
  • Were the data too good to be true? Did Mendel cheat? He may have simplified the numbers to avoid confusing his peers (not an unreasonable idea in his context). See this authoritative discussion of the problem.
  • Procedure for cross pollination of pea, described by an hobbyist gardener
  • A technical manual for pea breeding
  • Wild legumes avoid self-pollination and require insect for cross pollinators
