What's interesting is that Alison links the treecat adoption and intelligence to the Meyerdahl B mods but her study only includes the Harringtons - it doesn't include other people who may have received the Meyerdahl B mods.

The study might involve other Meyerdahl immigrants to Sphinx. A high G world like Sphinx would attract more high-G acclimated people then a normal G world would, so it stands that there should be several more root families from Meyerdahl on Sphinx, not that they necessarily have the -B modification.

Though taking some Treecat mind-scientists to Meyerdahl in the future certainly sounds like interesting science.

With Manticore's privacy laws, she'd need permission to access their family medical records.

The text doesn't give her reasons for not broadening the scope beyond her own kid(s), but she may just have wanted to keep all of them from becoming research subjects. Or having her own family mods aired in public.

So, did Alfred "adopt" Allison in lieu of a tree cat? Didn't Stinker make a comment to another 'cat that he had felt some attraction to Alfred, but not enough for an adoption bond?
