Dealer Notes
August Weismann’s theories of inheritance - according to which heredity is effected via germ cells such as gametes, rather than other cells in the body - had a major impact on the formulation of Darwin’s theories. Weismann’s influence on Romanes can be seen both in the latter’s lectures as contained in Darwin and After Darwin, and also in the present work, in which he engages directly with Weismann’s theories.
