Can behavior genetics contribute to evolutionary behavioral science?
Crawford & Krebs (1998), pp. 211-233. Abstract: This chapter has 3 main purposes: to review the methods and findings of contemporary human behavior genetics; to survey factors that maintain genetic variation, including the controversial idea of “adaptive genetic variation”; and to address genetic and evolutionary approaches to behavioral differences between ethnic groups. Specific issues addressed include: an overview of contemporary behavior genetics; the paradox of genetic variation; and the evolution of group differences.
- Behavioral genetics is interesting, but it doesnt seem like we know very much about it. Is it likely that we will find a genetic component that underlies all behavior?
- Does declawing contribute to the development of the types of behavioral problems that result in relinquishment?
- What is Behavioral Couples Therapy?
