    schema:description "This book traces the debate over whether, or how much, biological and evolutionary factors are responsible for human behavior, and looks at the effect this debate has had on biology, as seen in introductory biology textbooks. These issues focus on the interpretations and emphases that both sides have placed on the role of adaptation in evolution; the importance of evolution at the level of the gene versus at the level of organisms and populations; reductionism as a research method; simple Mendelianism versus more complex understandings of the relationship between genotype and phenotype; and ultimately, the nature of science itself. The book includes textual analyses of a selection of university-level introductory biology textbooks written between 1990 and 2010, examining the ways these texts cover sociobiology specifically, and animal behavior in general; evolutionary theory; genetic theory; and the nature of science."@en ;
