Natural Selection, Heredity, and Eugenics

J. H. Bennett

This selection of R.A. Fisher's unpublished papers and his correspondence with Charles Darwin's son Leonard and other important contemporaries elucidates much of what influenced him in writing one of the landmarks of twentieth-century biology, The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection. Also reflected in the correspondence are Fisher's itnerests in research of blood groups, the effects of inbreeding, and the importance of geographical variation in disease patterns.
