Young Finnish monozygotic twins. While genetically identical, environmental and stochastic effects do produce differences between twins even for highly heritable traits like height. However, in the presence of genetic effects, this difference is expected to be smaller on average for monozygotic than for dizygotic twins (see Perola et al.).
