Moltz (1965), for example, writes of the environment as being "actively implicated in determining the very structure and organization of each response system," and contrasts this view with that of a passive, hopefully benign, environment from which an organism takes what it needs. My own bias is toward placing the active role of environment in the phylogeny of a species rather than, as Moltz does, in the ontogeny of individuals. The result is the preprogramming of organisms for survival and propagation in their most probable environments.
