Humans have evolved both bipedalism and large brain size. The evolution of bipedalism altered the shape of the pelvis, and shrunk the birth canal at the same time brains were evolving to be larger. The decreasing birth canal size meant that babies are born earlier in development, when they have smaller brains. Supporting a larger brain gestationally requires energy the mother may be unable to invest.
The obstetrical dilemma makes birth challenging, and a distinguishing trait of humans is the need for assistance during childbirth. The altered shape of the bipedal pelvis requires that babies leave the birth canal facing away from the mother, contrary to all other primate species. The human need to have a birth attendant also requires sociality.
In order to guarantee the presence of a birth attendant, humans must aggregate in groups. It has been controversially claimed that humans have eusociality ,  like ants and bees, in which there is relatively high parental investment, cooperative care of young, and division of labor.
It is unclear which evolved first; sociality, bipedalism, or birth attendance. Bonobos, our closest living relatives alongside chimpanzees, have high female sociality and births among bonobos are also social events. As female primates age, their ability to reproduce decreases. The grandmother hypothesis describes the evolution of menopause, which may or may not be unique to humans among primates.
At menopause, it is more beneficial to stop reproduction and begin investing in grandchildren. Grandmothers are certain of their genetic relation to their grandchildren, especially the children of their daughters, because maternal certainty of their own children is high, and their daughters are certain of their maternity to their children as well.
It has also been theorized that grandmothers preferentially invest in the daughters of their daughters because X chromosomes carry more DNA and their granddaughters are most closely related to them. As altriciality increased, investment from individuals other than the mother became more necessary. High sociality meant that female relatives were present to help the mother, but paternal investment increased as well.
Paternal investment increases as it becomes more difficult to have additional children, and as the effects of investment on offspring fitness increase. Men are more likely than women to give no parental investment to their children, and the children of low-investing fathers are more likely to give less parental investment to their own children.
Father absence is a risk factor for both early sexual activity and teenage pregnancy. Women can only get pregnant while ovulating. Human ovulation is concealed, or not signaled externally. Concealed ovulation decreases paternity certainty because men are unsure when women ovulate. There are two ways this could be true. First, if men are unsure of the time of ovulation, the best way to successfully reproduce would be to repeatedly mate with a woman throughout her cycle, which requires pair bonding, which in turn increases paternal investment.
The second theory is better regarded today, because all mammals with concealed ovulation are promiscuous, and men display relatively low mate-guarding behavior, as monogamy and the first theory require. Sociosexuality was first described by Alfred Kinsey as a willingness to engage in casual and uncommitted sexual relationships. Individuals with an unrestricted sociosexual orientation have higher openness to sex in less committed relationships, and individuals with a restricted sociosexual orientation have lower openness to casual sexual relationships.
Individuals who are less open to casual relationships are not always seeking committed relationships, and individuals who are less interested in committed relationships are not always interested in casual relationships.
Parental investment theory, as proposed by Trivers, argues that the sex with higher obligatory investment will be more selective in choosing sex partners, and the sex with lower obligatory investment will be less selective and more interested in "casual" mating opportunities. The more investing sex cannot reproduce as frequently, causing the less investing sex to compete for mating opportunities.
Short- and long-term mating orientations influence women's preferences in men. Studies have found that women put great emphasis on career-orientation, ambition and devotion only when considering a long-term partner.
Women prefer men with good financial status, who are more committed, who are more athletic, and who are healthier. Some inaccurate theories have been inspired by parental investment theory. The "structural powerlessness hypothesis"  proposes that women strive to find mates with access to high levels of resources because as women, they are excluded from these resources directly.
However, this hypothesis has been disproved by studies which found that financially successful women place an even greater importance on financial status, social status, and possession of professional degrees. Sexual dimorphism is the difference in body size between male and female members of a species as a result of intrasexual selection, which is sexual selection that acts within a sex.
High sexual dimorphism and larger body size in males is a result of male-male competition for females. Polygynous primates have the highest sexual dimorphism, and polygamous and monogamous primates have less. Decreased polygyny is associated with increased paternal investment. The demographic transition describes the modern decrease in both birth and death rates. From a Darwinian perspective, it does not make sense that families with more resources are having fewer children.
One explanation for the demographic transition is the increased parental investment required to raise children who will be able to maintain the same level of resources as their parents.

Parental care is found in species of invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. PI for most primate species, including chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans, is typical for the mammals, in that female primates invest heavily both pre-natally and post-natally in the care and feeding of infants.
In comparison, males of most primate species invest relatively little in offspring. Exceptions are the considerable male PI provided in species of marmosets and tamarins, Aotus South American owl monkey , some macaques e. In general, there is greater paternal PI with greater paternal certainty, e. In contrast, the marmosets and tamarins practice polyandrous breeding low paternal certainty and the paternal PI may be a behavior to enhance mating opportunities.
Humans in some cultures have, perhaps, the highest levels of paternal PI of all primate species. Humans also practice a unique form of biocultural cooperative breeding. The human style of PI may have begun to evolve with the appearance of Homo ergaster Homo erectus in the fossil record. Timing of appearance of the difference in the Hominin Lineage as a defined date or a lineage separation event.

Logistic regression with Year as the predictor and geographic areas as outcomes. Within each period, we then fit generalized linear mixed models to evaluate which paternal characteristics are associated with the probability of a father being observed in a particular geographic sphere.
Twenty years later, following economic development, these associations are no longer significant. Table 2. Generalized linear multilevel logistic regression with traits of fathers as predictors and geographic areas as outcomes for Table 3.
We then ask, when fathers are at home, what are they doing Figure 2? A significant shift occurs over the years in whether a father was observed in domestic work, leisure, or child care. Figure 2. Percentage of time Maya fathers spend in different activities while in the home.
Table 4. Logistic regression with Year as the predictor and activities within home sphere as outcomes. We then assess the role of fathers' individual traits in predicting how a father spends his time while at home. Table 5. Generalized linear multilevel logistic regression with traits of fathers as predictors and activities at home as outcomes for Table 6.
In summary, we report seven key findings of relevance to male paternal investment behaviors. After the introduction of economic development, which facilitated access to urban markets and alternative ways to allocate time, fathers spend: 1 more time at home; 2 less time in their agricultural fields and out of town: 3 less time in social activities with other men in the village, particularly when they have an infant in the home; 4 more time interacting with their children 5 more time in domestic work; 6 less time in leisure; and 7 an increasing amount of time out of town in response to more children in the home.
Paternal investment can range from genetic inheritance Savalli and Fox, ; Hunt and Simmons, , to pre- or postnatal provisioning Clutton-Brock, ; Kaplan and Lancaster, , to assisting in social development and direct care Alberts and Altmann, ; Kaplan et al. Among the Maya recent economic development has introduced new subsistence opportunities that subsequently altered the payoff structure for paternal investment.
Traditionally, Maya fathers spent much of their day either farming or outside of the community selling agricultural goods. However, the introduction of a paved road, vehicles, and mechanized farming allow the same amount of resources either food, or cash produced by the sale of agricultural goods to be generated in less time.
These developments have also ushered in rapid social change and a transition from an agrarian economy with few opportunities for formal education to one that is recognized, community-wide, as increasingly skills-based, with children now spending much more of their day in school as a consequence Kramer, ; Veile and Kramer, ; Kramer and Veile, ; Urlacher and Kramer, For this project, we leveraged insight from life history theory as well as research on paternal investment in industrialized populations.
Now that Maya fathers have their time open to other pursuits, what do they do with this found time? We predicted that in response to economic development and a transition to a skills-based and education dependent economy, fathers would devote a greater proportion of their time budget to the needs of their children. Economic development and a market-based economy have been shown to incentivize intense investment in children, both in terms of indirect and direct investment Pleck, ; Kaplan et al.
As child success becomes more care dependent and resource intensive, fathers are expected to adjust their investments accordingly. Consistent with this expectation we found that fathers indeed began investing more in the nuclear family unit by spending more time at home, more time interacting with their children, and less time in leisure. Thus, children today are getting a larger share of their father's time budget than they did in the past.
The complementary nature of the division of labor as well as normatively enforced monogamy among the Maya results in few investment options outside of the pair-bond for men. Marriage to a single partner is the avenue toward adulthood, household formation, and the production of children. Over the year period considered here, divorce and out of wedlock birth have never been reported. Thus, generalizing from this case study, we would predict that, in a monogamous population with few opportunities for males to earn fitness benefits through other means, when opportunities arise to augment offspring quality, fathers will respond by intensifying investment in their children.
Monogamy describes the Maya mating pattern, however, sexual exclusivity within marriage is not a human universal, neither for men nor women Neel, ; Beckerman and Valentine, ; Anderson, ; Scelza, In societies where monogamy is either not the norm or not enforced, economic development may lead men to invest less in their children. Among Caribbean households, for example, both paternity uncertainty and limited male economic opportunities have been offered to explain why men are typically peripheral to family structure and why offspring success appears to be more dependent on female kinship networks; reviewed in Gray and Brown, Moreover, within polygynous pastoral societies, fathers may focus turning new found wealth into additional partners, as opposed to intensified investments in children Hedges et al.
Here, again, life history theory offers an evolutionary framework from which to understand variable patterning in paternal investment Stearns, ; Charnov, ; Hill, Because male investment is facultative, when fitness payoffs toward time and energy allocated to mating effort outweigh parenting effort, we expect men to invest less in direct and indirect care. While the nuclear family i. It is well documented that the human family exhibits remarkable flexibility within and across populations and social organization typical of cooperative breeders Hrdy, ; Russell and Lummaa, ; Kramer, ; van Schaik and Burkart, ; Kramer and Russell, While some form of pair-bonding is observed cross-culturally, with mothers as the primary infant caregiver, extended kin, and alloparental support are also necessary for offspring success.
However, economic development may lead to the economic nuclearization of the household Keilman, Among the Maya, as fathers spend less time in other activities unrelated to indirect and direct provisioning e. Large networks are indeed important for managing resource needs of large families, particularly under conditions of resources scarcity.
However they can also limit the ability of households to accumulate wealth necessary for child success where education is costly, yet necessary in a skills-based economy Stack, Thus we may see the emergence of the nuclear family as an independent economic unit among the Maya as fathers intensify their investment in fewer children and spend less time and resources on both extended-kin and non-kin. Possibly of concern in the current Maya context, particularly given that fertility has remained high, is that nuclear households may not yet be self-sufficient, and so child outcomes may suffer in response to smaller sharing networks until fertility declines.
Economic development across a broad swath of small-scale societies is currently occurring very rapidly. However, we do not expect outcomes to be uniform across place. Optimal levels of paternal investment are expected to vary by socioecological factors, including subsistence type, social organization, and mating system.
Because males can choose how to allocate their time, payoffs to a particular strategy are expected to be sensitive to marginal returns to offspring investment. Fathers with additional time on their hands as a consequence of mechanized farming are not universally expected to invest more in their children. This time could be reallocated to mating effort, leisure, socializing, or in a number of other ways.
In other small-scale societies, economic development in contrast has opened up opportunities for fathers to work outside of the community, which has led to fathers to adopt market jobs as opportunities to provision the family, and thus spend more time away from their children Mattison et al.
However, in rural Mexico, these positions are low-paying and temporary and cannot alone support a household. As evidence of this, no father in the sample had given up farming for wage labor. However, from interviews with fathers in the community, child success is increasingly recognized as care-dependent and resource intensive in response to the emergence of a skills-based economy.
Thus, we conclude that this change in the patterning of child success, coupled with few mating opportunities outside of marriage, incentivize fathers to funnel investments toward their children. Because of the intensive time investment required for data collection, the sample of fathers for both time periods is small, potentially giving only a partial view of paternal behavior. To minimize bias, fathers included in the study were drawn from a community-wide census.
One source of bias that we were not able to account for was migration-bias. Our data come from men who have chosen to remain in the community, which may select for particular kinds of men. And while not a limitation per-se , but because of our focus on fathers, we here leave out many other family members. For example, mother's time budgets are changing as well.
This increase is in part due to older children spending more time in school and so are less available as helpers. While fathers spent more time at home in than in , they still engaged in calorie and income generating activities outside of the home. Mothers have taken over more of the care of young children since , and in particular spend more time in the direct care of infants Kramer and Veile, This is consistent with other studies that find an association between market integration and young children being cared for more often by their mothers Valeggia, What this means for future fertility patterns as well as for gender relations, as women potentially transition into a fully domestic role, is the target of future research.
Figure 3. Percentage of time Maya mothers spent in each of four geographically distinct areas in and Maternal investment is necessary for infants and young children to survive in all but the most modern of human societies Kramer, In contrast, human paternal investment, and that of many other species, is facultatively expressed and dependent on a diverse array of individual, social, and ecological conditions Westneat and Sherman, , making it highly variable Cashdan, ; Kaplan and Lancaster, ; Geary, ; Marlowe, ; Gray and Anderson, Among the monogamous Maya, we find that incentives for intensified paternal investment, driven by the introduction of novel subsistence opportunities, are associated with fathers spending more time in the household, more time in domestic activities and more time interacting with their children.
These changes appear contingent on 1 increased efficiency in feeding offspring indirect investment such that more time is available for alternative activities; 2 limited opportunities to reinvest found time away from home e. In sum, here, in response to changing requirements for offspring independence, we find fathers to be responsive and accordingly spending less time in activities not directly relevant to parenting effort.
