Written by Robert Jurmain, Lynn Kilgore, and Wenda Trevathan, Essentials of Physical Anthropology ISBN 9780840032591 is a concise and well-written textbook designed to help students understand human evolution. It is suitable for introductory-level courses and has been enhanced with photographs, illustrations, and maps for clarity. Authors Jurmain, Kilgore, and Trevathan start off with an introduction then continue to the development of evolutionary theory, the biological basis of life, heredity and evolution, macroevolution: processes of vertebrate and mammalian evolution, and an overview of primates. This comprehensive textbook also covers primate behavior, primate and hominin origins, homo erectus and contemporaries, premodern humans, the origin and dispersal of modern humans, and human variation and adaptation. The extremely useful appendix contains a discussion of the anthropological perspective on the human life course and lessons from the past, an atlas of primate skeletal anatomy, a summary of early hominin fossil finds from Africa, and information on population genetics, among many others. To help students connect topics and concepts together, several chapters end with ‘Why It Matters' portions. Students interested in self-study can make use of the supplements provided, which let them not only answer exercises and check if they are right, but also assess their progress using revolutionary learning tools. There is a student companion website and a study guide, as well as an anthropology resource center and even a virtual laboratory. Instructors are provided a manual along with a test bank as well as a web tutor and even a power lecture with exam CD and PowerPoint presentations.
