  1. Matrilineal inheritance will be associated with a moderate to low probability of paternity, while patrilineal inheritance will be associated with a high probability of paternity (602).Hartung, John - Matrilineal inheritance: new theory and analysis, 1985 - 2 Variables

    This article provides a new explanation of matrilineal inheritence and paternity certainty, suggesting that matrilineal inheritance is most advantageous for women and can be described as a grandmaternal strategy. Results suggest a strong relationship between matrilineal inheritance and moderate to low probability of paternity, and an even stronger relationship between patrilineal inheritance and high probability of paternity.

  2. According to Hartung (1981), mode of inheritance will be related to paternity certainty (103).Gray, J. Patrick - A note on brother inheritance, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This article presents a reanalysis of the theory put forth by Hartung (1981) regarding the relationship between inheritance and paternity confidence. The authors take issue with the original sample used and retest the hypothesis.

  3. Female premarital sex is more likely to be restricted in societies that do not allow for extramarital sex.Šaffa, Gabriel - Paternity Uncertainty and Parent–Offspring Conflict Explain Restrictions on ..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    This study tests competing theories about whether it is men, women, or parents who benefit most from restricting female premarital sex (FPS) in a global sample of 128 non-industrial societies. The study found support for the idea that multiple parties benefit from restrictions on FPS -- specifically FPS is more restricted in societies intolerant of extramarital sex and where men transfer property to their children (male control), as well as where marriages are arranged by parents (parental control). They also found that major predictors of FPS appear to be paternity uncertainty and parent-offspring conflict. Furthermore, the study found that multiple factors such as social roles, rather than stereotyped sex roles, are a more useful approach in understanding FPS restrictions and these restrictions.

  4. Degree of polygyny will be positively related to male bias in inheritance (1).Hartung, John - Polygyny and inheritance of wealth, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the hypothesis that humans tend to transmit wealth to male heirs where polygyny is possible. The results support this hypothesis.

  8. A man's reproductive fitness will be most enhanced if he transfer's his heritable wealth to his son rather than his daughter (611).Hartung, John - On natural selection and the inheritance of wealth, 1976 - 1 Variables

    This study examines the relative reproductive benefits of different types of inheritance strategies. The author argues that, on the basis of the chromosomal corollary, a male's reproductive fitness will be most enhanced if his wealth transfers to his son and his son's son rather than to his daughter. Results from previous cross-cultural studies are provided in support of this hypothesis.
