Genetic Relationships between Relatives

  • Albert Jacquard
Part of the Biomathematics book series (BIOMATHEMATICS, volume 5)


The fact that related individuals resemble one another was no doubt the starting point of all genetical thought. The most casual observation shows that children resemble their parents, or sometimes are strikingly like a more distant relative, and that sibs resemble one another. It is also very noticeable that the extent of resemblance differs for different characters.
