About this book

Seasonality has effects on a wide range of human functions and activities, and is important in the understanding of human-environment relationships.

In this volume, distinguished contributors including human biologists, anthropologists, physiologists and nutritionists consider many of the different ways in which seasonality influences human biology and behaviour. Topics addressed include the influence of seasonality on hominid evolution, seasonal climatic effects on human physiology, fertility and physical growth, seasonality in morbidity, mortality and nutritional state, and seasonal factors in food production, modernization and work organization in Third World economies. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in human biology, anthropology and nutrition. First published in 1993.

..." includes several innovative analyses that set new standards in the collection, handling and interpretation of seasonal data and move some way towards both proximate and ultimate explanation...an excellent starting point for ecologists, anthropologists, nutritionists, epidemiologists, and clinicians interested in accelerating progress in this area..."
