  1. ". . . Unilocality is a necessary but not sufficient condition for unilineal descent" (70)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This article tests some conditions that may lead to the emergence of unilineal descent, focusing on unilocality and warfare. Unilineal descent is thought to be likely in a unilocal society without a centralized political system that is experiencing intra- or inter-societal warfare. The authors also posit that a "clan" system usually develops prior to a "lineage" system.

  2. ". . . among unilineal societies with internal warfare, those with higher densities would be more likely to have lineages than those with low densities" (82)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 4 Variables

  3. ". . . societies with internal warfare would tend to have at least one level of unilineal descent group typically contiguous, whereas societies with purely external warfare would not be as likely to have contiguous descent groups" (78)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

  4. ". . . there is a positive association between the number of putative unilineal groups at the highest level of unilineal descent in the society and the total number of persons in the society" (85)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 2 Variables

  9. Exclusive mother-child sleeping and a long postpartum sex taboo are positively associated with male initiation ceremonies in the presence of all of the following catalysts: nonmatrilocal societies, more-than-rare warfare, nonstate societies.Ember, Carol R. - Explaining male initiation ceremonies: new cross-cultural tests and a cataly..., 2010 - 6 Variables

    This article discusses two different explanations of male initiation ceremonies. Evidence is also presented that suggests that psychological conflict might strongly predict male initiation in the presence of the following catalysts: nonmatrilocal residence, nonstate political organization, and warfare.

  10. Warfare will interfere more with male labor in horticultural societies than in intensive agricultural societies (298)Ember, Carol R. - The relative decline in women’s contributions to agriculture with intensific..., 1983 - 2 Variables

    This article presents theory and hypothesis tests that suggest that the decline of women's contribution to intensive agriculture is related to increases in fertility and domestic work associated with cereal crops. Additionally, men in agricultural societies are less likely to invest time in hunting and warfare, so their contribution of agricultural labor relative to women's increases.
