Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 23 Mar 1862 : 27r

'Hooker, J. D.'

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Lighthearted thoughts on 'the development of an Aristocracy' after a visit to Walcot Hall, Shropshire. On Darwin's point about the effect of changed conditions on the reproductive organs, Hooker does not see why this is not 'itself a variation, not necessarily induced by domestication, but accompanying some variety artificially selected'.
