Neo Darwinism

  • Definition: A modified version of Darwin's evolutionary theory that eliminates elements of the Lamarckian inheritance of acquired characteristics and pangenesis that were present in Darwin's formulation; this theory originated with August Weismann in the late nineteenth century and after incorporating Mendelian genetic principles, has become the currently favored version of Darwinian evolutionary theory.
