This chapter argues that the history of French neo-Lamarckism can be analyzed and structured through two principal notions: plasticity and heredity. It examines the contradictory relationship between these two notions in order to understand the results of experimental transformism during the 1920s and the 1930s.

Keywords:   neo-Lamarckism, plasticity, heredity, experimental transformism, transformism
