Excerpt from Studies of Inheritance in Rabbits In this paper are recorded observations upon inheritance in rabbits which were made in the Harvard Zoological Laboratory with the aid of a grant from the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The authors desire to express their appreciation of that aid, without which these observations could t have been made. The experiments described were planned by the senior author, and this report also was written by him. Dr. H. E. Walter has made the majority of the extremely laborious observations and computations concerning the inheritance of ear-length and of body-weight. Dr. R. C. Mullenix prepared and measured the rabbit skeletons as a foundation for Part III of this paper; while both Dr. Walter and Mr. Cobb rendered valuable assistance in connection with the study which has been made of color inheritance. The senior author alone is responsible for the analytical treatment of the observations. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
