"Another example is much more common, but less acknowledged. It is the case of cell differentiation in embryonic development. Once a cell differentiates by responding to an environmental factor (i.e. an inductor substance), it usually passes its characteristics to descendants. (Alberts et. al. 1989, Blau, 1989). Again, after the acquisition of the differentiated character, there is hereditary transmission of it." (Aboitiz, F. (1992) Mechanisms of adaptive evolution. Darwinism and Lamarkism restated.
