On one side of this dichotomy is the qualitative tradition emphasizing cultural representation, identity, and social history (cf. Anderson and Broch-Due, 1999; Pálsson, 1990), while the other is the quantitative approach of the natural sciences focusing solely on biological and physical factors associated with pastoral ecology, adaptation, health and nutrition (cf. Little and Leslie, 1999). Some adherents of the latter approach criticize the former’s emphasis on “current anthropological theory and criticism, rather than concentrating on the acquisition of data that might have been used to test hypotheses and build the structure of a firm scientific base of information” (Little, 1997: 31).
