Paleoanthropologists are increasingly utilizing energetic models to provide insights into hominin ecology and evolution. Energy dynamics represent a key interface between an organism and its environment; how energy is extracted from limited resources and allocated to various somatic functions has consequences for survival and reproduction. Within the past few years, several teams of researchers have reconstructed Neandertal energy budgets to address issues such as foraging efficiency… Expand
