Non-mendelian vs mendelian

I didn’t understand the difference between Mendelian and non-mendelian genetics, can you please clarify?

Do you remember Mendel?

Mendelian traits are traits that are passed down by dominant and recessive alleles of one gene. … Non - Mendelian traits are not determined by dominant or recessive alleles, and they can involve more than one gene.
