Title: Why Intensive Agriculturalists Have Higher Fertility: A Household Energy Budget Approach
Author: Boone, James L.; Kramer, Karen L.
Subject(s): fertility
agriculture
population growth
sedentism
Abstract: It is widely held that human population growth rates began to increase markedly after the Pleistocene/Holocene transition largely as a consequence of the adoption of agriculture and sedentism. A common explanation for this increase in growth rates has been that circumstances associated with food production and/or the accompanying decrease in mobility allowed for higher fertility rates, but over the past decade a number of empirical studies and simulation analyses have revealed that the relationship between mode of subsistence and fertility is more complex than had previously been realized.
