- Maybe has to do with SS? o People say males have stronger upper-body strength to help them hunt w/their bare hands BUT we actually use weapons & tools to hunt & not bare hands - High risks associated with hunting for those women who gestate or lactate so those should not hunt Recall hadza people… Females in hadza dig for tubers (potatoes), they are most reliable In hadza men mainly hunt Hunting is unreliable in hadza, depends on season, ability to track an animal, etc In hadza: - Meat is shared among all camp members by elders (hunter doesn’t control allocation of shares) - Hunters family is not advantaged over others Hawkes and Bilege Evidence for kilograms supplied by each hunter and kilogram recovered by each hunter no relationship b/t amount of kilogram suopplied and kilogram received (look at r- values) The line on the graph is not important, only look at the correlation value of r=0.22 - Reveals there is no significance b/t the 2 Why do people (men) display their trophy kills? What are they displaying? Theory people use to explain this is: the costly signalling hypothesis - Costly signal : showing off you can do something by the costs. o its costly if it’s difficult to succeed o success needs to be public because it’s a signal o success build reputation o benefits to others: material (killing something to its useful to eat), information (bringing info about where you can find the animal back to the group) Meriam Turtle Hunting lot of turtle hunting in Meriam in Meriam tutle hunting there is a captain & jumper (who jumps in water and brings turtle) they donate the turtle meat to public feasts you would expect if you jump off boat in water that’s risky, that you would get most of the turtle, but that’s not the case ….why do it? Similar to hadza….

Line doesn’t mean anything!, no relationship b/t amount of kilogram suopplied and kilogram received (look at r-values) No direct reciprocity, you bring meat doesn’t mean you get that meat Reason why they do it is because…”rewards” reproductive success & mechanism of costly signal Awards are reproductive advantages Age: Turtle hunters vs non-hunters: all the turtle hunters are the same age Surviving offspring: Turtle hunters have more surviving offspring than non-hunters Age at first reproductive: turtle hunters reproduce at younger age # less than 1 are all those people not having mates (so in this population most people are not having mates) Mean proportion of mates: Turtle hunters have more mates than non-hunters proportion of hardworking mates: more in turtle hunters age of partners preferred: men often prefer younger mates, females prefer older - Turtle hunters wives are 3.5 years less than them, non-hunters have wives same age as them...why? younger someone is more potential offspring they can have in their lifespan

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
