Comment: Poignant critique of deterministic genetic canalization, range of reaction. Discussion of a vitally important study demonstrating that IQ differences are extremely developmentally complex. Also reviews evidence for how environment interacts with genes.

Gottlieb, G. (2003). On Making Behavioral Genetics Truly Developmental. Human Development, 46, 337-355.doi:10.1159/000073306
Comment: A lot of material shared with Gottlieb 1995 above, but more in depth. Includes discussion of the norm of reaction and of an actual model of the effect of genes on behavior. Critiques the confused concept of gene-environment interaction as operationalized in behavioral genetics and discusses the faults with statistical methods of detecting it

Comment: Summarizes the numerous attacks on the behavioral genetics paradigm and goes on to attack the philosophical foundations of the paradigm. Also reviews evidence for consensus against behavioral genetics in developmental biology/psychology & embryology.
