Is there any difference between heredity and inheritance?
Heredity is the passing of traits to offspring (from its parent or ancestors). This is the process by which an offspringcell or organism acquires or becomes predisposed to the characteristics of its parent cell or organism. Through heredity, variations exhibited by individuals can accumulate and cause some species to evolve. The study of heredity in biology is called genetics, which includes the field of epigenetics
Inheritance is the practice of passing on property, titles, debts, rights andobligations upon the death of an individual. It has long played an important role in human societies. The rules of inheritance differ between societies and have changed over time.
actually, heredity is the passing of traits to the offsprings and inheritance is the possession of those passed on traits.
when we say like i have inherited this trait from my parents it simply means you are talking about something that you actually possess.
Whereas as Inheritance is transmission of characters from one generation to next generation
Example for heriditary is one person is having talent of singing then if his two or more generation has the talent of singing then it is because of hereditary and only the next generation has the talent of singing then it is because of inheritance
I hope that this answer will help u
