|Date published||October 2009|
|Summary text/ abstract||A demographic transition can be defined as a quantitative leap in the selfregulated flow of population inputs and outputs that is determined by a qualitative change in the causal mechanisms underlying the regulation. There follows a short reflection concerning both the link between demographic pressure and cultural change and the significance of the NDT from the perspective of human demographic history, continuing a discussion that initiated 50 years ago. We know that the shift from a foraging to a producer economy coincided with an unprecedented increase in the amount of archaeological data in the Levant and elsewhere in the world. This increase was interpreted for a long time in terms of demographic growth. But was this growth slow or rapid? Was it due to an increase in fertility and/or a reduction in mortality?|
