  1. "Female infanticide and blood revenge warfare and feuding were both interrelated and effective in regulating population growth [in hunting and gathering bands as evidenced by sex ratios in young and adult populations]" (232)Divale, William Tulio - Systemic population control in the Middle and Upper Paleolithic: inferences ..., 1972 - 3 Variables

    This article examines cultural forms of population control. Results suggest that female infanticide and warfare are interrelated and effective forms of population control.

  2. "No war or infrequent war should be correlated with patrilocality and frequent war with matrilocality" (61)Divale, William Tulio - War, peace, and marital residence in pre-industrial societies, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This article tests a series of hypotheses differentiating internal warfare and external warfare. Results support the theory that internal warfare is a population control mechanism more common in patrilocal societies, whereas external warfare occurs between two societies, one of which recently migrated and adopted matrilocal residence. Based on these findings, the authors assert that internal warfare can be regulated while external warfare cannot.

  3. "Internal war should be correlated with more stable peace and external war with unstable peace" (61)Divale, William Tulio - War, peace, and marital residence in pre-industrial societies, 1976 - 2 Variables

  5. "Frequent external warfare should be correlated with a higher degree of male exogamy than when external warfare is infrequent" (304)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.

  6. "Internal war should be correlated with the presence of peacemaking mechanisms and external war with their absence" (61)Divale, William Tulio - War, peace, and marital residence in pre-industrial societies, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This article tests a series of hypotheses differentiating internal warfare and external warfare. Results support the theory that internal warfare is a population control mechanism more common in patrilocal societies, whereas external warfare occurs between two societies, one of which recently migrated and adopted matrilocal residence.

  7. "External warfare should be correlated with an absence or only infrequent occurrence of feuding while internal warfare should be correlated with frequent feuding"Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.

  8. "External warfare should be correlated with houses that have larger living floor areas while internal warfare should be associated with smaller floor areas" (302)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.
