The Mouse That Mumbled

This is a fascinating report on the link between genetics and behaviour in field mice. Trust me, you want to learn a little bit about field mice.

The fifth paragraph from the bottom actually gives the numbers of the effect size. Genetics contributes only a little to behaviour (although large enough none the less).

Should the report have included those numbers earlier in the article? Would people have continued reading none the less?
