First, these models seem to provide no handle for understanding short-term variations in fertility. If evolutionary change requires multiple generations to effect, and current fertility patterns vary dramatically within the space of one generation, clearly evolution cannot explain much. What evolutionary biology seeks to explain, however, is not the fertility outcome per se, but the genetic programming that enables humans to adapt their fertility to changes in environmental conditions. Understanding the nature of this genetic programming established centuries ago in hunter-gatherer societies, they argue, provides clues to why modern day fertility patterns vary so much from one set of social, cultural and economic circumstances to another (Kaplan 1996).
Another overlay which remains important to our understanding and explanation of behavior is the study of attitude behavior relationships. Many chapters depend upon such perspectives, including Piccinino and Peterson, Jaccard et al and Severy. Or, if one wishes to focus upon unintended pregnancy, Piccinino and Peterson, and Jaccard et al. are most important. It goes without saying that there are important significant others supporting this 'industry' and they know that we would not be able to offer this 'product' without their support and assistance.
