Herman, Rosemary
Early Child Development and Care, v16 n3-4 p265-75 1984
Reviews current research on a woman's chances of bearing twins and the genetic relationship, prenatal competition, and personality similarities between twins. In addition, the nature/nurture controversy is discussed in terms of evidence from studies of identical twins reared apart. Future studies are suggested to discover the ways twinning might be evolutionarily adapted. (CB)
