Physical Anthropology Text
Dear Professor Popplestone,
Our records indicate that you teach physical anthropology. I am excited
to inform you of the new seventh edition of <b>The Human Species: An
Introduction to Biological Anthropology</b> by John Relethford.
This text introduces physical anthropology, the science of human
biological evolution and variation. It addresses the major questions
that concern biological anthropologists: "What are humans?" "How are we
similar to and different from other animals?" "Where are our origins?"
"How did we evolve?" "Are we still evolving?" "How are we different from
one another?" and "What does the future hold for the human species?".
Here are some of the new features from the seventh edition:
<b>New material</b> on life history theory, primate reproductive
strategies, alloparenting, and dispersal and behavior has been added to
the chapter on mammalian and primate biology and behavior (5).
<b>A new chapter on methods of paleoanthropological research</b>
includes dating methods, methods of ecological and behavioral analysis
from fossils, a brief history of evolution before the appearance of the
first primates, and more!
<b>New topics added throughout</b> the text including discussion of
uniformitarianism and geologic time, recent developments in the
"intelligent design" movement, new research on natural selection in the
Duffy blood group and the 32CCR5 allele, new interpretations on
nutrition in hunting-gathering societies, and more!
This new edition is available now along with the Online Learning Center
for your spring classes. Please follow the link below for more
