Abstract

Eprint summary: This short article points out a number of problems with treatment of data & theory in an earlier article by Gregory C. Leavitt in which he mis-cites mainly old papers on inbreeding in nonhumans to support his contention that the human incest taboo does not have a biological component/substrate.
