Yasha Hartberg is a lecturer in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences at Texas A&M University.  He is an evolutionary biologist broadly interested in cultural inheritance systems.  Specifically, his work has focused on the idea of cultural genomes, repositories of socially transmitted information that can be deferentially accessed and interpreted by groups in order to respond adaptively to changing social and environmental conditions.  These repositories can take many forms ranging from institutional arrangements for sustainable management of natural resources to sacred texts that support the beliefs, behaviors and practices of religious communities.
