  1. Frequency of geophagy will be negatively associated with latitude (109).Young, Sera L. - Why on earth?: Evaluating hypotheses about the physiological functions of hu..., 2011 - 2 Variables

    The author tests various hypotheses regarding cross-cultural occurrence of geophagy, the eating of earth. Nearly 500 years of references to geophagy were compiled into the Database on Human Geophagy, which was then used to examine biological justifications for this little-understood behavior.

  5. Geophagy is more common in tropical environments.Young, Sera L. - Medicine beneath your feet: a biocultural examination of the risks and benef..., 2019 - 2 Variables

    Researchers examine the body of literature on the practice of geophagy(the consumption of earth), shining a light on the harms, benefits, and proposed reasoning behind the practice cross-sectionally. In addition to this review of the literature, gaps in the literature and suggestions for future research are discussed.

  6. Geophagy during pregnancy will be most common in populations that do not practice dairying or do not consume dairy products (534).Wiley, Andrea S. - Geophagy in pregnancy: a test of a hypothesis, 1998 - 2 Variables

    Geophagy during pregnancy has been proposed to fulfill a number of adaptive functions, including relieving gastrointestinal distress, detoxification of the secondary compounds found in plant foods, and providing a supplementary source of minerals such as calcium. Using a sample of 60 African populations, the authors investigate geophagy during pregnancy in a cross-cultural perspective, emphasizing variation between dairying and non-dairying populations.

  7. Nutritional deprivation variables will be associated with a series of adult personality characteristics: self evaluation, self reliance, dependence, emotional responsiveness, and world view (415).Rohner, Ronald P. - Parental rejection, food deprivation, and personality development: tests of ..., 1970 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates potential relationships between food deprivation, parental rejection, and personality development. Findings indicate that a series of adult personality characteristics (e.g. self evaluation and emotional responsiveness) are better predicted by parental rejection than by nutritional variables.

  8. There will be a correlation between dry climates and resource stress.Ember, Carol R. - Climate Variability, Drought, and the Belief that High Gods Are Associated w..., 2021 - 6 Variables

    The authors of this study explore the relationship between climate variability and beliefs that high gods are associated with the weather. As predicted, they find significant correlations between these beliefs and dry climates. They then evaluate how these findings contribute to their previous understanding of resource stress and its association to beliefs in high gods.

  9. Resource scarcity will be positively associated with warfare frequency in nonstate, nonpacified societies (37).Ember, Carol R. - Risk, uncertainty, and violence in eastern Africa: a regional comparison, 2012 - 2 Variables

    This article examines resource problems and warfare in a sample of societies from eastern Africa. The frequency and predictability of resource problems are examined, as are two other dimensions of warfare: resource-taking and commission of atrocities. Differences between state and nonstate societies, as well as pacified and non-pacified societies, are also examined and shown to affect associations between resource and warfare variables.
