    Group Selection, Morality, and Environmental Problems.Iver Mysterud - 2000 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 7 (1-2):1-2.
    As various kinds of resources become scarce within the context of today's population, consumption, and environmental problems, conflicts of interest will become more evident, competition become more intense, and certain kinds of ‘unwanted’ behavioural strategies might have a tendency to emerge and be used by a growing number of individuals. In such situations, humans may activate group adaptations. If we have group adaptations, like a tendency to classify humans into in-groups and out-groups and to develop moralities favouring one's in-group, it (...)

    Niko Tinbergen's Life and Work: A New Approach to Biology.Iver Mysterud - 2007 - Social Science Information 46 (3):543-553.
    English The life and work of the eminent ethologist and Nobel laureate Nikolaas Tinbergen played an essential role in the introduction of a new approach that is transforming the scientific understanding of animal behaviour, human nature and evolution. This article focuses on an extremely well-written biography of him, Niko's Nature, by Hans Kruuk, one of Tinbergen's former students. Niko's Nature is more than a biography: it is a presentation and an evaluation of the main lines of European ethology and behaviour (...)

    Expanding Evolutionary Psychology: Toward a Better Understanding of Violence and Aggression.Iver Mysterud & Dag Viljen Poleszynski - 2003 - Social Science Information 42 (1):5-50.
    The “mainstream” evolutionary psychology model is currently under criticism from scientists of other persuasions wanting to expand the model or to make it more realistic in various ways. We argue that focusing on the environment as if it consisted only of social factors gives too limited a perspective if evolutionary approaches are to understand the behavior of modern humans. Taking the case of violence, we argue that numerous novel environmental factors of nutritional and physical-chemical origin should be considered as relevant (...)

    One Name for the Evolutionary Baby? A Preliminary Guide for Everyone Confused by the Chaos of Names.Iver Mysterud - 2004 - Social Science Information 43 (1):95-114.
    Evolutionary studies of human behavior and design are increasing in popularity. There are now few topics or disciplines where an evolutionary perspective is not applied. For the past 40 years, evolutionary approaches to human behavior and design have been given many names, e.g. human ethology, human sociobiology, human behavioral ecology, evolutionary anthropology and evolutionary psychology. This diversity may be confusing when one first becomes interested in evolutionary studies. Different names have come and gone – often because they have become unpopular (...)
