The topic # 9. Wilhelm Roux (1850-1924).

I need in the references (see below) for these descriptions:

1881 Wilhelm Roux (1850-1924) transfers Charles Darwin's theory of the struggle for existence to the fight of cells and parts of the organism in the process of ontogenesis. Such idea is possible only provided that cells are considered independent living creatures. He wrote that stronger cells were to leave the greater number of off-springs than weaker cells. Then he developed an idea that those cells will have a more significant prevalence, which under effect of stimulation are the least worn-out and at the same time are stimulated for food accumulation and regeneration. As an evidence for the fight of cells, he referred to pathological processes, in which cells of one tissue are growing into another. Nowadays we know that there is absolutely no chaos in processes of cell reproduction and that any competition between cells for the space between them is out of the question.

1887 Wilhelm Roux (1850-1924) (
reference ?) put forth the suggestion that the linearly arranged qualities of the chromosomes were equally transmitted to both daughter cells at meiosis.

1888 Wilhelm Roux (1850-1924), German anatomist, a founder of experimental embryology. He was a pupil of Ernst Heinrich Haeckel (Hackel) (1834-1919) and a professor (1895-1921) at the University of Halle. In his studies of the relationship of embryology to evolution he developed specialized research techniques that he called "developmental mechanics," and in 1894 he founded as its organ the Archiv fr Entwicklungsmechanik.

Thanks to Dr. William Kimler the reference to Roux W. (1888) is now corrected: Roux, W. 1888. Beitrge zur Entwicklungsmechanik des Embryo.  ber die knstliche Hervorbringung halber Embryonen durch Zerstrung einer der beiden ersten Furchungskugelin, sowie ber die Nachentwicklung (Postgeneration) der fehlenden Kperhlfte. Virchows Arch. Pathol. Anat. Physiol., 114: 113-153; 289-291.

Help me please with this problem...
