This session provides a forum for recent biocultural research projects with hunter-gatherers from any part of the world. Contemporary biocultural forager research has provided insights into the aging processes (immune function, depression), human sleep patterns, cardiovascular diseases, dental health, leadership, inequality, and the how parasites influence fertility, smoking and mate attraction. The session aims to share and discuss results of recent research and consider possible future collaborative projects. Topics could include but are not limited to hunter-gatherer health, growth, genetics, social networks, human biology, or the evolution of ritual and other issues. We are particularly interested in papers that demonstrate biocultural interactions.
