Thinking about what we know (or not)

Most people tend to ignore the fact that it is food that makes us who we are and pheromones that tell others who and what we are

A mathematical model of phenotypic cause, effects on genes, and affects on behavior

the only thing wrong with mathematical models of cause and effect is that they attribute indirect genetic effects, direct genetic effects, and affects on behavior to something unknown

Non random adaptive evolution

Changes in food availability, food type, or the way you get food can trigger evolutionary mechanisms to deal with those changes. The result can be increased brain size and cognition, changes in locomotion and even social changes

One of the clearest examples of epigenetic effects

the honeybee model organism links the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemical-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution to genes, behavior, and back in species from microbes to man.
