In a multiple regression, father-infant sleeping distance will be associated with warfare frequency, marrying enemies, and polygyny (108).


Although marrying enemies and polygyny are both associated with father-infant sleeping distance (p< .002, .08 respectively), warfare frequency shows no relationship. This finding supports the Ember and Ember model.
