Adaptationism and molecular biology: An example based on ADHD

  • James Swanson (a1), Robert Moyzis (a1), John Fossella (a2), Jin Fan (a2) and Michael I. Posner (a2)...

Rather than starting with traits and speculating whether selective forces drove evolution in past environments, we propose starting with a candidate gene associated with a trait and testing first for patterns of selection at the DNA level. This can provide limitations on the number of traits to be evaluated subsequently by adaptationism as described by Andrews et al.
