BIOGENETIC LAW



Biogenetic Law        Biogenetic law is also known as Recapitulation Theory. It was postulated by Ernst Haeckel in 1866. According to the biogenetic law ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny , i.e. during the development of the animal embryo the evolutionary development of the species is repeated. The theory was influential and much-popular earlier but these days this theory is of little significance.
