About Gregor Mendel
Gregor Mendel (Gregor Johann Mendel) was a Moravian Augustinian friar and the founder of the science of genetics. His work was recognized almost 40 years after his experiments. He also had studied astronomy and meteorology.
His pea experiments from 1856 to 1863 established many rules of heredity, which are now referred to as the laws of Mendelian inheritance. During his work, he used 7 basic characteristics of pea plants: height, pod shape and color, seed shape and color, flower position and color. He experimented with hawkweed and honeybees as well.
