Garden Pea Traits Test

Welcome to the Electronic Frontier in biology for the 21st Century. Gregor Mendel is best known for his accurate records and observations of dominant and recessive traits of the common garden pea (Pisum sativum). You can take this test on learning those traits. As "fill-in" questions appear in this test, please enter your answers using all lower case letters. Unless, the question site prints you a set of directions. This test will allow you unlimited number of attempts and generate 25 new questions for each attempt.
