  1. Where serious pathogens are prevalent and severe, there will likely be increased polygyny (116).Low, Bobbi S. - Pathogen stress and polygyny in humans, 1987 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the association between pathogen risk and degree of polygyny and sexual advertisement. Results show that the greater the risk of serious pathogens, the greater the degree of polygyny. The correlation between pathogen risk and sexual signals is only marginally significant. An association between mate choice and resource control is also examined.

  2. Male-male competition and degree of male ornamentation will be positively associated with harem polygyny and promiscuous polygyny (469, 485).Low, Bobbi S. - Sexual selection and human ornamentation, 1979 - 3 Variables

    This chapter examines the role of male and female ornamentation. Several hypotheses concerning mating systems and ornamentation are empirically tested; several are supported.

  3. Pathogen stress will be positively associated with polygyny (p. 325).Low, Bobbi S. - Marriage systems and pathogen stress in human societies, 1990 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between pathogen stress and polygyny. Results indicate that there is a positive association between the two that is not confounded by geographic region, latitude, population density, male-male competition, or presence of brideprice. In particular, pathogen stress precicts higher levels of non-sororal polygyny and capturing women for wives or concubines.

  4. Pathogen stress will be positively associated with non-sororal polygyny (p. 334).Low, Bobbi S. - Marriage systems and pathogen stress in human societies, 1990 - 2 Variables

Results indicate that there is a positive association between the two that is not confounded by geographic region, latitude, population density, male-male competition, or presence of brideprice. In particular, pathogen stress precicts higher levels of non-sororal polygyny and capturing women for wives or concubines.

  5. Degree of polygyny will be negatively associated with women's inheritance of property (6)Low, Bobbi S. - Sex, power, and resources: ecological and social correlates of sex differences, 1990 - 2 Variables

    This article focuses on ecological correlates of sexual division in the control of resources. The author tests several ecological theories put forth by others. Sex coalitions are examined in humans, and sexual dimorphism in resource acquisition and control is discussed.

  6. Degree of polygyny, as well as the degree of non-sororal polygyny, will be positively related to pathogen stress (239).Low, Bobbi S. - Human responses to environmental extremeness and uncertainty: a cross-cultur..., 1988 - 2 Variables

    This article focuses on the effect of environmental extremes and unpredictability on human behavior and reproductive strategies. Significant correlations were found between environmental extremes and unpredictability and several variables, including mobility, subsistence mode, and degree of polygyny.

  7. No hypotheses are tested in this article.Low, Bobbi S. - Pathogen intensity cross-culturally, 1994 - 1 Variables

    This article reviews prior findings associating sexual selection, polygyny, and pathogen stress. The author also presents descriptions of several pathogens to facilitate further research.

  8. Male and female ornamentation will be positively associated with socially-imposed monogamy (469, 485).Low, Bobbi S. - Sexual selection and human ornamentation, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This chapter examines the role of male and female ornamentation. Several hypotheses concerning mating systems and ornamentation are empirically tested; several are supported.

  9. Pathogen stress will be positively associated with the maximum number of wives. (p. 325).Low, Bobbi S. - Marriage systems and pathogen stress in human societies, 1990 - 2 Variables

Results indicate that there is a positive association between the two that is not confounded by geographic region, latitude, population density, male-male competition, or presence of brideprice. In particular, pathogen stress precicts higher levels of non-sororal polygyny and capturing women for wives or concubines.
