Selection over two generations for increased and decreased resistance to scurvy in guinea-pigs has failed to produce conclusive evidence that the individual variations noted in resistance toward scurvy are inherited. An analysis of the effect of age, weight, and vigor as influencing resistance is presented and it is concluded that these factors, within the limits represented in the data, have not influenced the results. The results for the first generation of selection indicate a pronounced influence, but in the second generation the difference between the minus and plus selections is not significant.
