Synopses & Reviews
From the preface: This is a primer on foraging models relevant to the study of hunter-gatherers. It is intended for students new to the subject matter, especially those with little mathematical training, and similarly challenged ethnographers, ethnologists, and archaeologists who are familiar with the principles of foraging theory but have never mastered any of its individual models. There are more of them than one might think. The diet breadth model is the backbone of hunter-gatherer foraging research.
