  1. 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.

  5. Pathogen stress is positively associated with the signalling of fitness (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.

  6. In nonstate societies, male mortality in warfare will be positively associated with nonsororal polygyny.Ember, Melvin - Comparing explanations of polygyny, 2007 - 2 Variables

    This article uses logistic regression analysis to examine pathogen stress and male mortality in warfare as predictors of nonsororal polygyny. Differences between state and non-state societies are observed. The authors also retest variables from White and Burton's 1988 study on causes of polygyny, finding only fraternal interest groups and absence of plow significant.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Polygyny will be positively associated with higher socialization for aggression (324)de Munck, Victor C. - Wife-husband intimacy and female status in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 2 Variables

    This article examines predictors of intimacy between husbands and wives. Emphasis is on equality of spouses. A causal model is presented.
