By Robert B. Eckardt
Human Paleobiology offers a unifying framework for the examine of prior and current human populations to a number altering environments. It integrates proof from reviews 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 when it comes to 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 study difficulties in human paleobiology together with phenotypic differentiation, styles of species variety enlargement, and phyletic succession when it comes to the styles and methods nonetheless observable in extant populations. This publication should be a difficult and stimulating learn for college kids and researchers attracted to human paleobiology or evolutionary anthropology.
