Über mehrpolige Mitosen als Mittel zur Analyse des Zellkerns (pp.67-90).
Verh. physik. med. Ges., NF 35. - Würzburg, A. Stuber's Verlag (C. Kabitsch), 1903, 8, (2), 417, (1), pp., 3 Textabbildungen, 4 Tafeln, Halbleinenband d.Zt. St.a.Tit. feines Expl. First Edition of one of the major milestones of biology!"Theodor Boveri's experiments, involving, multipolar mitoses in sea urchin eggs fertilized by two sperms, demonstrated that different chromosomes perform different functions in development."This "preliminary report of this investigations was published in 1902, the very year that Walter Sutton called attention to "The probability that the association of paternal and maternal chromosomes in pairs and their subsequent separation during the reduction division ... may constitute the physical basis of the Mendelian law of heredity. Although Sutton began his work independently of Theodor Boveri (1862-1915), he stated that he was publishing a description of it in 1902 because of the "appearance of Boveri's recent remarkable paper on the analysis of the nucleus by means of observations on double-fertilized eggs"."More significant then all his other "contributions where, Boveri's primary influence on subsequent biology emanated from his demonstrations of chromosome individuality and his proof of the differential value of the chromosomes, which again to borrow Wilson's word, "laid the basis for the cytological explanation of Mendel's law of heredity"."
