Maybe I am confused but I don't see why people who wish to rehabilitate
Lamarck get excited over research like this.


I don't want to rehabilitate Lamarck. However, it is exciting research in
its own right because it gives us a clue as to how memetic effects can have
long term consequences at the genetic level (Laland's caveats granted)

This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
