Richard Dawkins: "The extended phenotype allows that cascade of causal
arrows to reach out beyond the body wall. Extended phenotypes are things
like birds' nests, or bower-bird bowers. A peacock has a tail with which it
woos females. A male bower bird builds a grass tail, a bower, in the bushes,
and dances around it, and that's what attracts the females. That bower made
of grass is performing exactly the same role as a peacock's tail. Genes that
make for a good bower, a pretty bower, get passed on to the next generation.
The bower is a phenotypic effect of genes. It's an extended phenotype."
So a bird in the bush is worth two in the hand?
