by P. Rudan, Physical Biological Anthropology Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Physical Biological Anthropology books, Physical (Biological) Anthropology theme is a component of Encyclopedia Of Biological, Physiological And Health Sciences (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Biological anthropology, also known as physical anthropology, is a scientific discipline concerned with the biological and behavioral aspects of human beings, their related non-human primates and their extinct hominin ancestors. It is a subfield of anthropology that provides a biological perspective to the systematic study of human beings. This volume is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.

Download Biological Anthropology Of The Human Skeleton books, "This book is virtually required reading for biological anthropologists and will be a useful, up-to-date primer on osteological analyses for a wider audience." —The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2009 "… a comprehensive guide to the ever-changing discipline of physical anthropology… provides an in depth introduction to human skeletal biology. The structure of the book makes it easy for the reader to follow the progression of the field of human skeletal biology." —PaleoAnthropology, 2009 Issue The First Edition of Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton is the market-leading reference and textbook on the scientific analysis of human skeletal remains recovered from archaeological sites. Now, featuring scores of new or thoroughly revised content, this Second Edition provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the topic available. Like the previous edition, this Second Edition is organized into five parts with contributing chapters written by experts in the field of human skeletal biology: Part One covers theory and application; Part Two discusses morphological analyses of bone, teeth, and age changes; Part Three reviews prehistoric health and disease; Part Four examines chemical and genetic analysis of hard tissues; and Part Five closes with coverage of quantitative methods and population studies. Each chapter includes a review of recent studies, descriptions of analytical techniques and underlying assumptions, theory, methodological advances, and speculation about future research. New or thoroughly revised content includes: Techniques in the analysis of human skeletal and dental remains Extensive coverage of new technologies, including modern morphometric techniques Advances in the field of forensic anthropology Enhanced discussion of ethical terms regarding the study of aboriginal peoples' remains where those people are no longer the dominant culture This book serves as an indispensable research guide to biological anthropologists, osteologists, paleoanthropologists, and archaeologists. Now with a stronger focus on teaching complex material to students, this revised edition provides enhanced case studies and discussions for future directions, making it an invaluable textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in biological anthropology and forensic anthropology programs.

by Noel Thomas Boaz, Biological Anthropology Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Biological Anthropology books, This text uses a narrative approach to introduce human evolution and the dynamic subfields of biological anthropology. Evolution by natural selection provides the thread as students may learn the essentials of biological anthropology and genetics. In each section, behaviour, morphology, adaptation and ecology are discussed to provide the context and comparative bases for human origins. The human adaptation to culture and the interworkings of culture, biology, behaviour, and evolution are emphasized.

by Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Preventive Medicine Douglas E Crews, Biological Anthropology And Aging Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Biological Anthropology And Aging books, This timely volume explores evolutionary, cross-cultural, physiological, environmental, and pathological influences on variation in human biological aging. Chapters by leading experts use models traditionally unique to anthropological research in order to illuminate human biological aging as a heterogeneous and variable process. By explicitly emphasizing evolutionary biology and human variation, the book presents the fascinating perspective of human biological aging as the end result of a set of co-adapted genetic complexes associated with successful growth, development, reproduction, and parenting of offspring. While examining human life span and life-history parameters as population-level phenomena, the book also emphasizes human phenotypic plasticity as key to understanding aging. This broad evolutionary perspective is unique in biological gerontology, a field that is often reductionist in method and theory. The book is sure to appeal to students, teachers, and researchers of geriatrics, gerontology, biology and anthropology of aging, and human population biology.

Download Body Composition In Biological Anthropology books, This volume provides a thought-provoking, interdisciplinary perspective on the empirical and analytic study of body composition and the techniques used for measuring body components, such as fat, water, muscle, and bone mass and density. The nature of regional differences, developmental changes, pathological abnormalities, and the impact of heredity and environment in shaping body composition are discussed in the context of human evolution. For instance, the author looks at how growth, aging, and exposure to heat, cold, excess or lack of nourishment modify normal body composition.
