    Relationship Between Subsistence and Age at Weaning in “Preindustrial” Societies.Daniel W. Sellen & Diana B. Smay - 2001 - Human Nature 12 (1):47-87.
    Cross-cultural studies have revealed broad quantitative associations between subsistence practice and demographic parameters for preindustrial populations. One explanation is that variationin the availability of suitable weaning foods influenced the frequency and duration of breastfeeding and thus the length of interbirth intervals and the probability of child survival (the “weaning food availability” hypothesis). We examine the available data on weaning age variation in preindustrial populations and report results of a cross-cultural test of the predictions that weaning occurred earlier in agricultural and (...)

    Polygyny and Child Growth in a Traditional Pastoral Society.Daniel W. Sellen - 1999 - Human Nature 10 (4):329-371.
    In this paper I use measures of childhood growth to assess from both an evolutionary theoretical and an applied public health perspective the impact of polygyny on maternal-child welfare among the Datoga pastoralists of Tanzania. I report that the growth and body composition of children varies in such a way as to suggest that polygyny is not generally beneficial to women in terms of offspring quality. Cross-sectional analysis of covariance by maternal marriage status revealed that children of first and second (...)

  13. Breastfeeding Duration and the Social Learning of Infant Feeding Knowledge in Two Maya Communities.Luseadra J. McKerracher, Pablo Nepomnaschy, Rachel MacKay Altman, Daniel Sellen & Mark Collard - forthcoming - Human Nature:1-25.
    Variation in the durations of exclusive breastfeeding and any breastfeeding is associated with socioecological factors. This plasticity in breastfeeding behavior appears adaptive, but the mechanisms involved are unclear. With this concept in mind, we investigated whether durations of exBF and anyBF in a rural Maya population covary with markers of a form of socioecological change—market integration—and whether individual factors and/or learning from others in the community mediate these changes. Using data from 419 mother-child pairs from two Guatemalan Maya villages, we (...)
