At the level of theory, human behavioral ecology has also made considerable strides. One major improvement since the late 1970s is the convergence of work on mating, parenting, and social behavior, on the one hand, with work on foraging strategies on the other. In the 1970s these areas were mostly explored by different groups of researchers, whereas in the 1980s and into the 1990s the distinction between them has become increasingly blurred and both lines of thought have become enriched. This has happened as people have considered the possibility that social and reproductive goals may influence economic strategies and, conversely, that the characteristics of resources and environments may affect mating, parenting, and social behavior.
