Biographical Info


Colette Berbesque is an evolutionary anthropologist with particular research interests in human ecology, the evolution of the hominin diet, and the evolution of cooperation, prestige, and hierarchy. For more than a decade, her research has included fieldwork with the Hadza of Tanzania, one of the last extant hunter-gatherer populations. Through analysis of behavioural data from the Hadza as well as from other hunter-gatherer groups, she investigates aspects of human evolution, including: strategies of food procurement and provisioning, cooperation, reputation, and sexual selection and gender.
