Work on these issues is still in its infancy, but the promise for important scientific advances is great, particularly in light of the rapidly developing capabilities of both quantitative genetics and molecular genetic research. The recognition of genetic influences on fertility leads to a further point, that fertility is at least in part the product of evolution. That evolution and natural selection occur is by now practically undisputed among scientists, and mating and reproduction are critical components of this process.
