  1. Agricultural societies should exhibit a lower degree of sexual dimorphism than non-agricultural societies (576).Wolfe, Linda D. - Subsistence practices and human sexual dimorphism of stature, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the validity of two previous diachronic studies examining the relationship between subsistence strategy and sexual dimorphism of stature with synchronic data. The authors find that neither hypothesis is valid.

  2. Human sexual dimorphism of stature will be associated with latitude category (409, 413).Wolfe, Linda D. - Latitude and intersocietal variation of human sexual dimorphism of stature, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between sexual dimorphism of stature and latitude; data support the association. The authors also find support for an association between latitude and human marriage systems, a variable proposed by Alexander (1979) to explain variation in sexual dimorphism of stature. When societies are categorized by latitude, the relationships between marriage systems and sexual dimorphism do not reach significance. Overall the authors emphasize the influence of environmental adaptation on sexual dimorphism rather than an explanation solely focused on male-male competition.

  3. High level of nutrition will be positively associated with sexual dimorphism of stature (228).Wolfe, Linda D. - A cross-cultural investigation into the sexual dimorphism of stature, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This article examines height and sexual dimorphism of stature from a sociobiological perspective. Diet, child rearing, and marriage practices are tested as possible factors contributing to height sexual dimorphism of stature. Results provide some support for a nutritional hypotheses, but sexual selection and parental investment are not statistically significant.
