This innovative new text uses a narrative approach to introduce readers to human evolution and the dynamic subfields of biological anthropology. Evolution by natural selection provides the thread as readers learn the essentials of biological anthropology and genetics. In each section, behavior, morphology, adaptation, and ecology are discussed to provide the context and comparative bases for human origins. The human adaptation to culture and the interworkings of culture, biology, behavior, and evolution are emphasized.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 565-574) and index.
