- wherein

According to De Vries, evolution in a discontinous and jerky process, rather than a continious and gradual one

 

 

 

According to Hugo De Vries, mutuations are discontinuous, random and non-directional. These mutuations are responsible for the accumulation of variations that act as the raw material for evolution.
