For the ET maps, the cutpoints represent 2 of the ET thresholds identified in Binford 2001: ET 15.25 is the storage threshold; ET 12.75 is the plant dependence threshold. See list of all generalizations, propositions, etc. --- page number references in the index under “threshold”. (DRW: yes: 312-313 plant dependence at ET 12.7 C, 55o lattitude, also 266-7, 305, 357, 442, ...mobility, emergent complexity, polygyny, population density, packing threshold, scale-related, temperature-related, storage threshold, GROUP1, plant and animal dependence thresholds, etc.).
