A Method for Demonstrating Genetic Principles Using an Imaginary Organism.
Priestland, R. N.
Journal of Biological Education, v16 n2 p141-43 Sum 1982
Describes an imaginary organism used to illustrate principles of genetics. The organism is easily drawn and suited to simple printing techniques, having been used to show independent segregation, partial dominance, linkage (sex chromosomes and autosomes), and in inheritance of autosomal gene lethal in the homozygous state. Additional exercises are suggested. (Author/JN)
