Placing male-child interaction in evolutionary context

Lee Gettler, a 3rd year PhD student at Northwestern University, published Direct Male Care and Hominin Evolution: Why Male–Child Interaction Is More Than a Nice Social Idea
in the March 2010 issue of American Anthropologist. Lee combed comparative, ethnographic, and energetic data to upend typical evolutionary models that cast male hominins primarily as provisioners of females with whom they want to mate (cf. Lovejoy 1981, 2009).
