Assessing evolutionary-based hypotheses relevant to social processes and outcomes within families requires studying pairs of individuals who vary in their genetic and environmental relatedness. Twin studies, in particular, provide novel approaches to old problems regarding human social relations. This chapter reviews the biological differences between twin types and outlines ways of incorporating twins in evolutionary psychological research.
