Human behavioural ecology, anthropogenic impact and subsistence change at the teouma lapita site, central Vanuatu, 3000-2500 BP
This thesis investigates early human palaeoecological interaction at the Teouma Lapita site on Efate Island, central Vanuatu, and how it changed during a period of cultural transition between 3000-2500 BP. Here I take a quantified approach through an evolutionary ecological theoretical framework using optimal foraging models (Prey Choice, Patch Choice and Central Place Foraging) to generate predictions of optimal economic behaviour in response to temporal variation in prey abundances. These...[Show more]
