Harvard’s Department of Human Evolutionary Biology is built around a fundamental question: “What makes us human?” Faculty and students study an immense diversity of topics. in both our laboratories and far-flung field sites, from the Congo Basin to the Fijian archipelago.

The Skeletal Biology & Biomechanics Lab. "More than simply a textbook or compilation, this volume is nothing short of a handbook for a young and vigorous branch of biology. Authoritative, comprehensive, and up-to-date, it will be an essential book for student and expert alike.

Muehlenbein and his contributors have defined human evolutionary biology for the next decade."5/5(4). This book could also serve as a "basic science" text for a science class that also on human biology. The book covers basic introductory cell biology concepts such as metabolism, and cell division and then does a system-by-system discussion of the human body.

The book includes a 4/5(3). Human Biology: An Evolutionary and Biocultural Perspective, Second Edition. Editor(s): Sara Stinson This comprehensive introduction to the field of human biology covers all the major areas of the field: genetic variation, variation related to climate, infectious and non-infectious diseases, aging, growth, nutrition, and demography.

Human Evolutionary Biology (HEB) provides a general foundation in human and organismic biology as part of the life sciences cluster of concentrations.

All HEB concentrators receive a core introduction to basic evolutionary biology as well as human and nonhuman primate genetics, physiology, anatomy, behavioral biology, and paleontology. Author Nicholas Christakis spells out the main claim of this book on page “The social suite is founded on human evolutionary biology and is therefore a universal feature of our societies.” In other words, the way we behave versus one another, the structure of our society, is built-in and it’s gotten to where it is now through natural /5(73).

Human Evolutionary Biology by Michael P. Muehlenbein,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(9). Introduction. The study of human evolution involves (1) understanding the evolutionary context and the circumstances surrounding the origin of the branch of the Tree of Life (technically referred to as a clade) whose only extant taxon is modern humans, (2) recognizing the extinct species that are more closely related to modern humans than to the closest living apes (i.e., chimpanzees and.

The minimal evolutionary process is an increase in the frequency of a mutation, or a set of mutations, within a population, and the corresponding decrease in frequency of previously common alleles.

Such frequency changes are the consequence of random genetic drift (leading to occasional fixation of nearly neutral genetic variants) or of diverse. Evolutionary biology of hormonal responses to social challenges in the human child Mark V.
