Human Population Cycles


Epigenes Australia is a research institute situated in Australia, currently working on a research project consisting of looking for lemming-like population cycles in human civilizations. Lemmings and voles have developed a population cycle in response to the uncertainty associated with the hash arctic conditions. Likewise, we hypothesize that human civilizations also respond to uncertainty with changes in behaviour that generate population cycles. Epigenes and CSH are interested in working together in the research area of human population cycles. CSH will provide access to datasets related to population dynamics, demographics, and cycle indicators such as population growth and decline, war, famine, and epidemics from a range of civilizations. Subsequent discussions may identify further data that may be useful to Epigenes. If interested CSH staff could help Epigenes with modelling the data. Epigenes will provide regular updates of progress.
