In the s, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck first described epigenetics to explain the inheritance of acquired characteristics; however, his theory was supplanted in the s by Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection through heritable genetic mutations/5(13).

This controversial book challenges the accepted theories on the genetic mechanism of evolution. The story these three biologists have to tell may very well upset the whole field of traditional view of evolution—which grew out of the work of Gregor Mendel and Charles Darwin and is strongly supported by present-day scientists like Richard Dawkins and Stephen Jay Cited by: LAMARCK’S EVOLUTION: two centuries of genius and jealousy.

Individuals capable of transformation. Population of interbreeding individuals with similar characteristics, though variation is common. Lamarck believed that the need for a new trait would promote the evolution of that trait.

Darwin proposed that evolution occurred through the selective pressure for a preexisting trait in a. The other way that Lamarck's theory has been proven wrong is the study of genetics.

Darwin knew that traits are passed on, but he never understood how they are passed on. During the time when Darwin's first book first came out, Gregor Mendel, who discovered genetics, was just starting his experiments.
