This antique natural history chart would look fantastic in a variety of small settings: libraries, laboratories, cabinets of curiosity, attics, and studies! My line of natural history charts is created on high-quality cream paper from high-resolution copies of actual antique illustrations. They are not meant to be rolled or unrolled. Simply affix the chart as is to any surface, using nonpermanent adhesive wax.
"Gregor Mendel, who is known as the "father of modern genetics", was inspired by both his professors at university and his colleagues at the monastery to study variation in plants, and he conducted his study in the monastery's two hectare experimental garden, which was originally planted by the abbot Napp in 1830. Between 1856 and 1863 Mendel cultivated and tested some 29,000 pea plants (i.e., Pisum sativum). This study showed that one in four pea plants had purebred recessive alleles, two out of four were hybrid and one out of four were purebred dominant. His experiments led him to make two generalizations, the Law of Segregation and the Law of Independent Assortment, which later became known as Mendel's Laws of Inheritance..."
