Seasonal fluctuations constrain the food production options of nonindustrial peoples. How do people cope with these constraints and what are the consequences of seasonality for human health and well-being? The papers in this volume address these issues from a variety of perspectives. Included are studies of physiological responses to seasonal scarcity, seasonality research in archaeology, and ethnographic case studies of the role of seasonality in food procurement.
