  7. Intensive agriculture will be associated with shorter postpartum sex taboos (1 year or less) (294)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.

  9. Species with great seasonal variation in resources and climate (further distance from the equator) will be positively associated with the existence of breeding seasons (204)Ember, Carol R. - The evolution of human female sexuality: a cross-cultural perspective, 1984 - 2 Variables

    This paper suggests a tentative analysis of continuous female sexual receptivity based on a random sample of mammals and birds. It is suggested that humans developed continuous female sexual receptivity because humans have the unusual combination of long infant dependency, group living, and male-female bonding.
