What are acquired traits?
Asked by vibhuti37 | 15th Nov, 2009, 05:39: PM
Acquired traits are acquired or attained during the lifetime of an individual. These cannot be passed to the next generation, since these characteristics are due to changes in somatic cells of the body. These changes do not bring about any alteration in the genes of the germ cells of the organism.
