Where you live shapes how you behave

Foraging humans, mammals and birds who live in the same place behave similarly

Foraging humans find food, reproduce, share parenting, and even organise their social groups in similar ways as surrounding mammal and bird species, depending on where they live in the world, new research has found. A new study by a team of international researchers shows environmental factors exert an overriding influence on how foraging human populations and non-human species behave, despite their very different backgrounds.
