Genetic factors play the greatest role in an individual's physical growth and development early in life, while environmental factors tend to play an increasing role over time.
Nearly all aspects of an individual's physical growth and development are a result of complex interactions between genetic and environmental factors.
An individual's adult size and shape are primarily determined by genetic factors; however, the rate and timing of growth are mainly due to environmental factors.
Environmental factors generally play a significantly greater role than genetic factors in determining an individual's physical growth and development.
