In this episode of the Sausage of Science, Cara and Chris talk with Drs. Jesús Rodriguez & Ana Mateos, scientists at the Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana (CENIEH) in Burgos, Spain. Drs. Rodriguez and Mateos highlight the amazing work going on at the center at the forefront of human evolution research. They also discuss their AJHB editor’s choice article entitled “No sex differences in the economy of load‐carriage”. Be sure to check out the article here:…02/ajhb.23352

Their experimental work challenges long-held assumptions regarding sex differences in human energetics and contributes to both optimal foraging and life history theory.
