  2. Parental involvement will be negatively correlated with the prevalence of theft (p. 171).Quinlan, Robert J. - Parenting and cultures of risk: a comparative analysis of infidelity, aggres..., 2007 - 3 Variables

    This study tests a broad "risk response" hypothesis: environmental risk can reduce parents' involvement and care which, through its effects on children's behavioral strategies later in life, ultimately produces a larger cultural model favoring risky behavior. Examinations of extramarital sex, aggression, theft, and witchcraft support this hypothesis, leading the authors to suggest that child development is the underpinning of cultural adaptation in the face of environmental change.

  5. Historical pathogen prevalence will be negatively associated with prevalence of physical contact during mortuary rituals (5).Murray, Damian R. - The kiss of death: three tests of the relationship between disease threat an..., 2016 - 2 Variables

    In order to evaluate an adaptive justification for restriction of ritualized physical contact, the authors test association between three manifestations of physical interaction and prevalence of pathogens cross-culturally. Their expectation, supported by two of the three tested hypotheses, is that higher pathogen prevalence will lead to customs of restricted physical contact. Both cultural and biological evolution are suggested to be influential in selecting for physically intimate behaviors.

  9. Polygyny is positively associated with female genital mutilation (153-154)Wilson, Christopher G. - Male genital mutilation: an adaptation to sexual conflict, 2008 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the "sexual conflict" hypothesis which predicts that male genital mutilation should be associated with polygyny and a reduction in the frequency of extramarital sex. Male genital mutilation (MGM) rituals should be highly public and facilitate access to social benefits. Support for these assumptions is provided.
