Richard Goldschmidt was one of the cofounders of physiological developmental genetics who studied the effects of genes on sex determination in Lymantria. He is best known as an unorthodox theorist, who proposed an early model of regulatory mutations and coined such terms as "hopeful monsters", describing large phenotypic changes.
