Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Adler looks at changes in residential groups during the 400 years the Anasazi were developing large aggregated settlements. Adler argues that population aggregation is associated with changes in the degree of resource scarcity, especially arable land and water. As resource scarcity increases, social groups try to increase their direct control over the scarce resource. The northern Anasazi solved this problem by living in aggregated communities.
