biogenesis, principle of defined in 1951 year

biogenesis, principle of - biogenesis, principle of;
biogenesis, principle of - The biological rule that a living thing can originate only from a parent or parents on the whole similar to itself. It denies both spontaneous generation and such fanciful notions current 300 years ago as the origin of geese from barnacles. If allowance is made for alternation of generations, complex life cycles, extreme sexual dimorphism, castes, and hybridization, it is true; though it may possibly need further qualification in the case of the simpler viruses, which it has been suggested may arise from normal constituents of cells.
