Abstract: Human reproductive ecology is a relatively new subfield of human evolutionary biology focusing on the responsiveness of the human reproductive system to ecological variables. Many of the advances in human, and more recently primate, reproductive ecology concern the influence of energetics on the allocation of reproductive effort. This paper reviews eleven working hypotheses that have emerged from recent work in reproductive ecology that have potential bearing on the role of energetics in human evolution. Suggestions are made about the inferences that may connect this body of work to our efforts to reconstruct the forces that have shaped human biology over the course of our evolutionary history.
