Fron foundation to innovation: discover the best of biological anthropology.
Over the past 40 years, the study of biological anthropology has rapidly evolved from focusing on just physical anthropology to including the study of the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior.
The 3rd edition of Exploring Biological Anthropology combines the most up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the foundations of the field with modern innovations and discoveries.
