TitleHaldane, John Burdon Sanderson: certificate of election to the Royal Society
CitationHe has contributed to our knowledge of acid-base equilibrium in man and of the causes and effects of alterations therein. This work has led to the therapeutic use of ammonium chloride in tetany, lead-poisoning, etc. He is the author of other papers on biochemical subjects and of a valuable monograph on enzymes. He has worked both experimentally and theoretically on animal and plant genetics. His discoveries in this latter field include the first case of autosomal linkage in vertebrates and a general law regarding the sex of hybrid animals. In a series of papers on the mathematical theory of natural selection he has developed some of the consequences following logically from Darwin's hypothesis.
