  1. ". . . we . . . expect that societies with internal warfare would be more apt to have lineages than those with purely external war . . ." (80)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

    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.

  3. ". . . given internal war, lineages are more apt to be found when the density is at least five persons per square mile" (83)Ember, Carol R. - On the development of unilineal descent, 1974 - 3 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.

  4. ". . . the relationship between migration and residence controlling on the presence versus absence of purely external warfare . . . becomes nonsignificant in both control conditions" (138)Ember, Carol R. - An evaluation of alternative theories of matrilocal versus patrilocal residence, 1974 - 3 Variables

    This paper investigates the relationship between marital residence and warfare. The author evaluates two theories proposing opposite causalities: one, that internal warfarecauses patrilocality; the other, that residence comes first and influences type of warfare. The author presents a new model emphasizing the role of population size in determining type of warfare, which in turn affects marital residence. However, the role of migration in determining marital residence is also considered.

  5. Societies that have internal warfare or purely external warfare with men contributing a great deal to subsistence should tend toward patrilocality; those with purely external war and high female contribution to subsistence should tend toward matrilocalityEmber, Carol R. - Residential variation among hunter-gatherers, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study explores predictors of variation in two dimensions of marital residence patterns among hunter-gatherers: 1) the tendency toward patrilocality versus matrilocality and 2) the tendency toward unilocality versus bilocality.

  9. ". . . control[ling] on the presence versus absence of migration, the relationship between type of warfare and residence does not disappear" (139)Ember, Carol R. - An evaluation of alternative theories of matrilocal versus patrilocal residence, 1974 - 3 Variables

The author evaluates two theories proposing opposite causalities: one, that internal warfarecauses patrilocality; the other, that residence comes first and influences type of warfare. The author presents a new model emphasizing the role of population size in determining type of warfare, which in turn affects marital residence. However, the role of migration in determining marital residence is also considered.

  10. ". . . 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

    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.
