Biography:

William Irons did his is doctoral research on the Yomut Turkmen, a group of pastoral nomads in northern Iran.  He later returned to Iran for two more studies of the Yomut.  The last study was an extensive demographic and economic survey which provided data very useful for evolutionary analysis.

In 1976, he and Napoleon Chagnon organized a set of symposia on the use of behavioral ecology in anthropology for the 1976 annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association.  These symposia led to the publication, in 1979, of a volume edited by Chagnon and Irons entitled Evolutionary Biology and Human Social Behavior: An Anthropological Perspective.  This volume presented much of the earliest work in anthropology designed to evaluate evolutionary theories of behavior and culture.

We wondered why they have chosen Turkmenistan for their holiday destination but we did not have a courage to ask them… Read more…
