Archaeology and Behavioral Ecology of Maritime Hunter-gatherers of the Northeast Pacific Rim
Author(s): Shannon Tushingham
This is an abstract from the "Human Behavioral Ecology at the Coastal Margins: Global Perspectives on Coastal & Maritime Adaptations" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Human-behavioral ecology (HBE) provides a powerful framework for understanding human adaptations under differing environmental and socio-economic circumstances. In this paper I summarize influential HBE models and approaches as they have been applied to understanding the behavior and development of Northern California and Pacific Northwest Coast hunting, gathering, and fishing communities, as well as comment on the challenges of HBE approaches in the region, the dynamic nature of coastal environments, and current and future case studies with a focus on models that enhance our understanding of the evolution of mass harvesting techniques, human-fishery dynamics, sedentism, and storage.
