By Robert B. Eckardt
Human Paleobiology offers a unifying framework for the learn of earlier and current human populations to quite a number altering environments. It integrates facts from experiences of human adaptability, comparative primatology, and molecular genetics to rfile constant measures of genetic distance between subspecies, species, and different taxonomic groupings. those findings help the translation of human biology by way of fewer variety of populations characterised through better degrees of genetic continuity than formerly hypothesized. utilizing this as a foundation, Robert Eckhardt is going directly to research difficulties in human paleobiology together with phenotypic differentiation, styles of species diversity enlargement, and phyletic succession when it comes to the styles and approaches nonetheless observable in extant populations. This e-book could be a demanding and stimulating learn for college kids and researchers attracted to human paleobiology or evolutionary anthropology.
