Introduction

This article constitutes an attempt to provide some illustrations of how the integration of biological and cultural factors is proceeding with regard to the topic of adolescence and gender. It will begin with a survey of some theories and research methodologies used in studying the prevalence, causation, and function of a given behavior or sex difference. Next, human adolescence will be described and analyzed functionally, with special attention to sex differences of puberty and puberty rites. Sex differences in adolescent family relations, labor, and mate choice will then be addressed. Some illustrative individual and cultural differences in these general patterns will also be analyzed. The article, then, will take a functional approach in attempting to explain why particular sex differences in behavior occur in adolescence.
