Description

From Foundation to Innovation: The Best of Biological Anthropology

Biological Anthropology, 3/e is written as accessibly as possible to be useful to students at community colleges to research-oriented university levels.  It continues to build upon the strength and success of its first and second editions by integrating the foundations and the most current innovations in the field from the ground up.

Over the past 40 years, this field has rapidly evolved from the study of physical anthropology into biological anthropology.  Biological anthropology is now an integrative combination of information from the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and of populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior.  The third edition of Biological Anthropology combines the most up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the foundations of the field with modern innovations and discoveries.
