Exploring Biological Anthropology 4e present a concise overview of biological anthropology, from very early foundations to the most recent innovations.

Exploring Biological Anthropology: The Essentials, 4th Edition, (PDF) combines concise coverage of the foundations of the field with modern innovations and discoveries, helping anthropology students understand, and get excited about, the amazing discipline. Because the authors conduct research in 3 of the main areas of biological anthropology – primate behavior and ecology (Craig Stanford), the human fossil record (Susan Antón), and human biology and the brain (John Allen) – they offer a specialist approach that engages college students and gives them everything they need to master the subject. The 4th Edition continues to present traditional physical anthropology within a modern Darwinian framework and includes coverage of contemporary discoveries to highlight the ever-increasing body of knowledge in the field of biological anthropology.

Over the past four decades, the study of biological anthropology has rapidly evolved from focusing on just physical anthropology to include the studying of the human skeleton and fossil records, our primate relatives, human adaptation, genetics of individuals and populations, and human behavior. The ebook Exploring Biological Anthropology, 4th edition, combines the most recent, comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the foundations of the field with modern discoveries and innovations.
