  1. In societies where females have the social status to exercise mate choice, there will be lower stature sexual dimorphism (SSD), but only if there is high food security.Gleeson, Ben Thomas - Female status, food security, and stature sexual dimorphism: Testing mate ch..., 2018 - 6 Variables

    The present study examines the effect of social status on stature sexual dimorphism and whether food security acts as a mediator for this relationship. In societies where females have high social status and can exercise mate choice, there is lower stature sexual dimorphism. Food security enhances these results. Conversely, there is greater stature sexual dimorphism in societies where females have low social status and cannot exercise mate choice, especially if there is food insecurity.
