  1. High frequency of resource stress will be negatively associated with female status among hunter-gatherers (455)Hayden, Brian - Ecological determinants of women's status among hunter/gatherers, 1986 - 2 Variables

    A materialist approach is used to study the status of women in hunter-gatherer groups. Techno-ecological factors are tested as predictors of women's status.

  4. "In general, the more the division of labor, the more warlike, the groups with compulsory classes being the most warlike of all primitive people" (67)Wright, Quincy - Primitive warfare and Appendix IX, 1942 - 2 Variables

    This chapter is concerned with correlates of warlikeness among non-industrial societies. Findings indicate that warlikeness is associated with climate, mobility, subsistence, political integration, division of labor, culture contact.

  5. Most constellation observations amongst hunter gatherers will be of single stars or small portions of systems.Hayden, Brian - Astronomy in the Upper Palaeolithic, 2011 - 1 Variables

    Researchers examine the ethnographic record, sampling 82 hunter gatherer societies from the HRAF World Cultures database, for cross-cultural patterns of archaeological evidence of knowledge of astronomy and constellations. Surveying the data, researchers identified many patterns in the upper paleolithic, noting the importance of further examination of this topic.

  7. War wealth will be positively associated with the frequency of external warfareEff, E. Anthon - Farming and Fighting: An Empirical Analysis of the Ecological-Evolutionary T..., 2012 - 2 Variables

    In this article, the authors seek to reevaluate Nolan's (2003) study on the primary determinants of war. They reanalyze his hypotheses with what they claim are more robust measures and methodology. They conclude that there is only a little evidence supporting Nolan's theories, that more productive technology and higher population density predict war, and that overall ecological-evolutionary and sociopolitical explanations of war are equally supported by empirical data.

  8. 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.

  9. Women's political participation and economic control will predict adult gender inequality when controlling for technology, hunger, warfare, patrilocality, and women's economic contribution (79).Baunach, Dawn Michelle - Gender inequality in childhood: toward a life course perspective, 2001 - 3 Variables

    This article builds upon gender inequality theory to examine childhood gender inequality in preindustrial societies. Multivariate and cluster analysis are used.
