This interdisciplinary series explores new evolutionary approaches to the study of human behavior and culture, highlighting questions regarding adaptive significance, phylogenetic history, mechanism, and ontogeny. Topical areas include foraging theory and behavioral economics, life history theory, group and social dynamics, reproduction and mating tactics, health and disease, evolutionary psychology, and cultural evolutionary processes, in primate and human societies, past and present. Drawing from various methodological and disciplinary sources, all authors share a commitment to advancing evolutionary understanding of behavior and culture.
