More adaptationism

Yesterday I wrote about Chris Mooney who concocted an adaptationist story about how the brain differences underlying political preferences have evolved by natural selection. A new article provides another example of adaptationist arguments as it tries to explain how the zebra got its stripes. Over at Sandwalk their is an excellent explanation of why we shouldn't get too excited that we've found the reason for zebra stripes just yet.
