His use of statistics enabled him to place problems of heredity within a population and not just within individual acts of reproduction. Pearson’s views on inheritance differed from Galton’s in two respects: firstly, Pearson thought most of the hereditable material could be found in the parents and thus he did not attach the same amount of importance to ancestry as did Galton, and secondly, he did not think that inherited variation should be necessarily normally distributed A century of mendelism in human genetics 20 Whilst Pearson used parametric models of correlation for continuous variation in the 1890s, he had also begun to consider the role of discrete or discontinuous variation.
