Heritability is not a measure of the relative contribution of nature vis-à-vis nurture, nor is it the phenotypic variance explained by or due to genetic variance. Heritability is a correlative value. The evolutionary and developmental processes associated with human culture challenge the use of 'heritability' for understanding human behavior.
