Jurmain, Kilgore, Trevathan, and Ciochon's Introduction to Physical Anthroplogy 2011-2012 Edition brings to focus the relevance of anthropology and human evolution. This strategically organized and balanced textbook offers a compelling discussion of the introductory concepts of the field, combining well-researched information, friendly writing style, and engaging visual content. The goal of the book is to help students develop a masterful understanding of the place of the human species in its biological environment. The book also focuses on the impact of humans and human evolution on the ecology and all the life forms of the planet. Other topics covered include molecular biology, human biology, genomics, and other ever-changing fields that relate to anthropology. Introduction to Physical Anthropology 2011-2012 Edition (ISBN 9781111297930) has a total of 17 chapters, the first of which offers a brief introduction to physical anthropology, evolution, and heredity. The next chapters talk about the evolutionary theory, followed by the biological basis of life, and then heredity and evolution. Macroevolution is also discussed, followed by sections on living primates, their behaviors, and patterns that influence human behavioral evolution. The latter parts of the book tackle fossil primates, paleoanthropology, and human origins (starting from Homonin origins in Africa, followed by the dispersal of Genus Homo, to pre-modern and modern humans). The authors also talk about modern human biology and variation and adaptation patterns. The book concludes with a discussion of the implications of the human life course and why these implications matter. Jurmain, Kilgore, Trevathan, and Ciochon also included helpful appendices, including an atlas of primate skeletal anatomy, a summary of early hominin fossil finds (Africa), taxonomy of living matters, and population genetics. The authors used an approachable writing style combined with visual presentations to make this book a more effective reference.
