How did Mendel’s approach to answering scientific questions differ from that of his
contemporaries?

Mendel’s approach to answering scientific questions varied from his contemporaries because he chose to concentrate on only seven characteristics of inheritance. His contemporaries were studying inheritance traits, or factors, on a much larger scale. Mendel also did something that none of his contemporaries never had, he utilized mathematical analysis to calculate the ratio of offspring that would show each trait that he was studying.


How did his novel approach contribute to his success in describing how traits are inherited?



What advantages did he enjoy by choosing to study the garden pea?


Because his study was so focused, and he was using mathematical analysis to calculate the offspring of the parent pea plants, Mendel was more successful than his contemporaries when studying traits, or factors, of inheritance because he was able to concentrate on a plant that went through generations quickly.


*** I have put in what I have been able to learn from my text book but I am unsure about the answers that I already have and have no idea about the answers to the other questions. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
