How People Make Their Own Environments: A Theory of Genotype (Leading to) Environment Effects.
Scarr, Sandra; McCartney, Kathleen
Child Development, v54 n2 p424-35 Apr 1983
Proposes a theory of development in which experience is directed by genotypes and in which genotypic differences affect phenotypic differences, both directly and through experience, via three kinds of genotype-environment effects. The theory adapts the three kinds of genotype-environment correlations in a developmental model used to explain results from studies of deprivation, intervention, twins, and families. (Author/RH)
