MCQ : Who proposed the theory of mutation? (a) Mendel (b) Darwin (c) Lamarck (d) De-Vries



Hugo de Vries


Hugo de Vries, a Dutch botanist and geneticist, proposed the theory of mutation, which suggests that mutations, or random genetic changes, are the primary source of variation in populations and the driving force behind evolution. He observed sudden and dramatic changes in the flower color of evening primroses, which he attributed to mutations. De Vries’s work helped to establish the importance of mutations as a mechanism for evolutionary change.
