Bias in behaviour genetics: An ecological perspective

Acta Biotheoretica 46 (4):369-377 (1998)
Research in behaviour genetics uncovers causes of behaviour at the population level. For inferences about individuals we also need to know how genes and the environment affect phenotypes. Behaviour genetics fosters a biased view of individual behaviour since it identifies the environment with psychosocial factors and disregards ecology.
