Inujjuamiut Foraging Strategies: Evolutionary Ecology of an Arctic Hunting Economy

Humans have spent most of their evolutionary history in foraging economies.

It synthesizes the theory and analytical techniques of evolutionary ecology and microeconomics with the general concern of anthropology, especially ecological anthropology.
