  1. A model including environmental setting and mortality rates will be significant in predicting adult height (p. S360).Migliano, Andrea Bamberg - The effects of mortality, subsistence, and ecology on human adult height and..., 2012 - 4 Variables

    By better understanding the factors influencing adult height in modern populations, the authors hope to generate a testable hypothesis to determine the factors affecting body size during hominin evolution. The authors employ an exploratory linear regression model to test the effects of mortality, environment, and subsistence strategy on adult height among traditional small scale human societies. They found that mortality rates were the most significant predictor of adult height and that people living in savanna environments are consistently taller.
