Neo-Darwinists have known for ages that the organism is
not reducible simply to genotype.  Organisms are the product
of an incredibly complex *interaction* between genotype
and environment.  One must understand the environmental input
in order to understand the organism, just as much as one
must know the genes.  This is basic - nothing
revolutionary about it.
