Examples of Dominant and Recessive Traits
The figure below shows some examples of some characteristics that
are thought to be determined by simple dominant-recessive
Note that the word "dominant" does not imply that a
characteristic is more normal or common than a recessive one. Dominance
means that an allele is expressed in both homozygous dominant and
heterozygous conditions. By contrast, the corresponding recessive
allele is expressed only when homozygous.
