Flashcards in Chapter 11: Mendel's Principles Deck (6):
1

Mendel studied specific heritable features that had alternative forms

characters and character differences

2

pea plants can _____

self-fertilize or self-pollinate

3

Mendel prevented self-fertilization by cutting off the anthers, and used pollen from a different plant to fertilize the flowers

cross fertilization or cross pollination

4

adult plants carry a pair of factors (alleles of genes) that govern the inheritance of each trait

first hypothesis

5

if an individual's pair of genes consists of different alleles one allele is dominant over the other, which is recessive

second hypothesis

6

pairs of alleles segregate as gametes are formed; half the gametes are carry on allele, and the other half carry the other allele

third hypothesis
Principle of Segregation
