Cross-cultural comparison of learning in human hunting

Human Nature Vol/Iss. 18(4) Springer Published In Pages: 386-402
By MacDonald, Katharine


Using qualitative ethnographic data on the development of hunting skills, MacDonald evaluates several previous models of life history theory and the role of learning. Alternative theories and predictions are identified. Although the sample is ad-hoc and no hypotheses are statistically tested, MacDonald descriptively analyzes cross-cultural similarities and differences to gain insight into human evolution, hunting, and learning.
