At the beginning of this century, after the rediscovery of Mendel's classic paper, there was a tendency among the geneticists to explain the variation of quantitative traits by the segregation of one or at most two genes. After this mendelian zeal, the polygenic interpretation of the continuous variation was put forward and found very satisfactory.
