BOUT 40 years ago in his extensive experiments with hooded rats, CASTLE (1916) A demonstrated that by selective breeding the average grade of coloration could be carried far beyond the limits of variation of the foundation stock. He was among the first to prove that selection could produce permanent change in quantitative characters. CASTLE'S results on quantitative variation have stimulated investigation in different fields of genetics which continue to the present day. Contributions… CONTINUE READING
