Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just a precautionary query: did Bartels actually study identical twins? When she says she wants to study up to 4500 twins, is she going to get them from real life, or from "the literature" (ie the corpus of past studies)?

And the answer is, yes, she did, both identical as non-identical. And as I read it, she is planning to involve 4500 twins from real life and not pluck them out of the literature. She just started this research and has at least several years to pursue.

But the same question came up that PeWi below asked as well: are there that many twins around?? I guess there are or they wouldn't have bothered...
