Therefore, this project seeks to gain insight into the sociobiology
of bacterioplankton in relation to the cycling of C1 compounds through the following objectives: i) identify bacteria consuming C1 compounds and determine their spatial variability and coupling with other marine bacteria in contrasting oceanic regions; ii) study the temporal variations and co-occurrence of C1 compounds producers and consumers under defined experimental conditions and iii) gain insight into their interactions using model organisms and specific substrates in controlled experiments.
Human Nature and the Evolution of Society uses psychology, sociobiology
and human behavioral ecology to explore social life in society and considers everything from parenthood and kinship to social violence, using case study examples from around the world and throughout human and animal societies.
The results have been published in the Journal of Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology
The traditions covered include: functionalism, Marxian and Weberian conflict theories, world-systems analysis, exchange and rational choice theory, cultural materialism, social evolutionism, sociobiology
, and eclecticism.
Writing in the journal Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology
, they said such men produced, on average, more than two-and-ahalf children.
Importantly, this is not a form of sociobiology
in which all our behavior is genetically driven, yet there are "genetically based constraints" on what can count as a moral rule, or perhaps, in other words, "there is some genetic control over the basic moral intuitions that are used to construct a full blown morality that would contain a set of moral do's and don'ts.
Along the way contributors touch briefly but competently on other specific topics such as miracles, social Darwinism, and some implications of sociobiology
Ranging in date from 1957 to 1977 and including an exchange with education scholar Howard Haymes, the essays examine the presence of sexist stereotypes and preconceptions in the biological and social sciences, especially primatology, sociobiology
, and anthropology.
These he labels Neo-Marxism, Functionalism, Symbolic Interactionism, Sociobiology
, Rational Choice Theory, Elite Theory, Neo-Weberianism, and Anti-foundationalism.
He embraces sociobiology
, and is critical of Berry's perspective and belief that not all can be known.
