|Standard Cross Cultural Sample (SCCS)||Researchers Own||Odd Numbers. For measures of pathogen presence, data was drawn from Beaver et al. (1984), Markell and Voge (1981), Faust and Russel (1964), and WHO|
|Where serious pathogens are prevalent and severe, there will likely be increased polygyny (116).||Supported|
