William Bateson (1861-1926) was an English biologist and evolutionary theorist who was best known for rediscovering and defending the genetic paradigm of Gregor Mendel. Bateson first used the term 'genetics' to refer to the study of heredity. These reports cover the seminal research conducted by Bateson. "The rediscovery of Mendel's work transformed Bateson's career. He reinterpreted experimental data already available in Mendelian terms. As spokesman for the new discipline, Bateson knew no peer, yet his work was financed with great difficulty. The reports to the evolution committee of the Royal Society were the main vehicle of Mendelian publication in Britain until 1910" (DSB).
