Human Energetics in Biological Anthropologyby Stanley J. Ulijaszek
Pub. Date: 07/31/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Human Energetics in Biological Anthropology considers various ways in which measurements of energy intake, expenditure and balance have been used to study human populations by biological anthropologists and human biologists. Central to this approach is the concept of adaptation and adaptability, placed in as ecological context by considering such processes in traditional subsistence economies in the developing world. The book will be useful to students in biological anthropology, nutritional anthropology, and third world nutrition.
