  1. In hunting and gathering societies, parents arranging a marriage will look for a hardworking spouse for their child (407)Apostolou, Menelaos - Sexual selection under parental choice: the role of parents in the evolution..., 2007 - 2 Variables

    This study reveals that in hunting and gathering societies thought to be akin to those of our ancestors, female choice is constained by the control that parents exercise over their daughters.
