An exciting new cross-disciplinary field of biocultural research is emerging at the start of the twenty-first century: developmental evolutionary biology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Are humans underdeveloped or overdeveloped apes? What is the role of brain development in life history and how has it changed during hominoid evolution? Using the new, cross-disciplinary field of developmental evolutionary biology, this volume examines these questions and postulates new theories on how cognition, language and behavior develop in primates. The result of the School of American Research seminar "Evolution of Behavioral Ontogeny" (August 1995), this academic book is aimed at anthropologists, psychologists and biologists. Annotation c.
