  1. "Tonal cohesiveness and tonal relaxation . . . [and] polyphony in female choruses rise in direct proportion to the degree of feminine involvement in subsistence labor" (167-168)Lomax, Alan - Song as a measure of culture, 1968 - 4 Variables

    This chapter explores the relationship between cultural complexity and song. Several measures of cultural complexity are correlated with different aspects of singing. All hypotheses are supported.

  3. Agricultural subsistence activity is associated with male contribution to subsistence (283).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 3 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.

  4. ". . . when the percentage of female contribution to subsistence is either very high or very low, female status . . . is also low. . . . The more balance there is in division of labor by sex the higher the [female] status score" (198)Sanday, Peggy R. - Female status in the public domain, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This chapter is concerned with the conditions under which task allocation between males and females changes in a way that alters the imbalance of power favoring males. The author finds that when female contribution to subsistence is high or low, female status is low, but when female and male contribution to subsistence is more balanced, there is greater equality between male and female status.

  5. Hunting will be negatively associated with female status among hunter-gatherers (457)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.

  6. Female contribution to diet in horticultural groups will be negatively associated with dependence on cultigens (214).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 3 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.

  7. Matrilineal descent will be positively associated with female contribution to subsistence and negatively associated with dependence on cultivation (219).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 4 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.

  8. Male contribution to subsistence will be negatively associated with percent of polygynous women among foragers (292-3).Marlowe, Frank W. - The mating system of foragers in the standard cross-cultural sample, 2003 - 3 Variables

    This article examines variation in polygyny among foragers. Empirical analysis suggests that the level of male provisioning influences mating systems: higher male contribution to subsistence is associated with monogamy. The influences of pathogen stress, male-male competition, and male coercion are also considered.

  9. "The relationship between population density and mean residence time is a positive, increasing curvilinear function (434)"Freeman, Jacob - Intensification, tipping points, and social change in a coupled forager-reso..., 2012 - 3 Variables

    The authors present a bioeconomic model of hunter-gatherer foraging effort to quantitatively represent forager intensification. Using cross-cultural data, the model is evaluated as a means to better understand variation in residential stability and resource ownership.

  10. "A critical threshold change should occur where the slope of the relationship between habitat residence time and population density changes dramatically, suggesting two distinct social regimes (434)"Freeman, Jacob - Intensification, tipping points, and social change in a coupled forager-reso..., 2012 - 3 Variables

    The authors present a bioeconomic model of hunter-gatherer foraging effort to quantitatively represent forager intensification. Using cross-cultural data, the model is evaluated as a means to better understand variation in residential stability and resource ownership.
