Caption: Mendel's beehives in the grounds of the Abbey of Saint Thomas, Brno, Czech Republic. The Abbey's museum collection (the Mendelianum) commemorates Gregor Johann Mendel (1822-1884), genetic pioneer, Austrian botanist and former abbot of the Abbey. Mendel conducted his breeding experiments with pea plants here, discovering the statistical laws of heredity. From his results, he postulated the existence of a unit of heredity that is now called the gene. He also investigated weather patterns, and his interests included bee-keeping. A new exhibition, The Genius of Genetics, opened here in May 2002.
