Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


We summarize and integrate the results of the sequential canonical cascade model that explores the structural relations among the various latent constructs we have operationalized, including climate, parasite burden, population density, life history strategy, social stratification, sexual differentiation, strategic and cognitive differentiation effects, macroeconomic specialization and diversification, human capital, and general cognitive ability.
