Abstract

Family connections were paramount for the Darwin-Wedgwood family. It is therefore no surprise that Charles Darwin, writing to English physician and horticulturalist Dr John Denny, uses terminology of family structures to discuss geranium breeding: ‘With respect to transmittance of character, when both parents are of equally good constitution, I shd expect from what little I know that different rules wd hold in difft families’.
