  1. Societies that have internal warfare or purely external warfare with men contributing a great deal to subsistence should tend toward patrilocality; those with purely external war and high female contribution to subsistence should tend toward matrilocalityEmber, Carol R. - Residential variation among hunter-gatherers, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study explores predictors of variation in two dimensions of marital residence patterns among hunter-gatherers: 1) the tendency toward patrilocality versus matrilocality and 2) the tendency toward unilocality versus bilocality.

  2. The more a society depends upon fishing, the more it should tend toward patrilocality. And the more a society depends upon gathering, the more it should tend toward matrilocality (202)Ember, Carol R. - Residential variation among hunter-gatherers, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study explores predictors of variation in two dimensions of marital residence patterns among hunter-gatherers: 1) the tendency toward patrilocality versus matrilocality and 2) the tendency toward unilocality versus bilocality.

  6. ". . . in noncommercial societies, where married couples are usually obliged to live and work with kin, depopulation so reduces the feasibility of adhering to a single unilocal rule that couples are forced to live with whichever spouse's close relatives are still alive (213)Ember, Carol R. - Residential variation among hunter-gatherers, 1975 - 2 Variables

  7. Virilocality is positively correlated with level of stratification and men's time in subsistence activity (48).Marlowe, Frank W. - Paternal investment and the human mating system, 2000 - 3 Variables

    This article explores the interrelated roles of male parental investment (males' infant/child care and resource provisioning) and male-male competition (variation in male status) on the degree of monogamy or polygyny in a society. Marlowe argues that Degree of parental investment affects females' interest in resource-shopping versus gene-shopping. Also discussed is the idea that male-male competition affects males' inclination toward harem-defense or coercive polygyny. Particular attention is paid to variation in parental investment and male stratification across subsistence types.

  8. Subsistence activities performed by males provides a greater proportion of the hunter-gatherer diet than those performed by females (183).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This book discusses the role of women cross-culturally. The authors use a cross-cultural sample to examine the differences between men and women in contribution to subsistence as well as the social juxtaposition of the sexes in foraging, horticultural, agricultural, pastoral, and industrial societies.

  9. In pathic societies, there will be a negative association between male homosexual marriage partnerships and female contribution to subsistence (189).Crapo, Richard H. - Factors in the cross-cultural patterning of male homosexuality: a reappraisa..., 1995 - 2 Variables

    This study argues that different types of homosexuality must be examined separately. Authors focus on mentorship and pathic homosexual behavior and test factors that are associated with these two types of behavior.

  10. Hunter-gatherer and lowland South American horticulturalist societies tend toward multilocality.Walker, Robert S. - Human Residence Patterns, 2015 - 2 Variables

    The present research examines the residence patterns of 34 hunter-gatherer societies and 34 lowland South American horticulturalist societies using census data. Contrary to the traditional view of patrilocal postmarital residence being prevalent, the present findings suggest more multilocality in residence patterns for hunter-gatherer and horticulturalist societies. The author concludes that hunter-gatherers are slightly patrilocal and horticulturalists slightly matrilocal.
