Описание: For all that science knows about the living world, there are even more things that we don`t know, genuine evolutionary mysteries that perplex the best minds in biology. Homo Mysterious examines a number of these mysteries, exploring things that we don`t yet know about ourselves, laying out the best current hypotheses, and pointing toward insights that scientists are just beginning to glimpse.

Описание: Growth, Development and Reproduction is a title in the new Cambridge Advanced Sciences series. It has been developed specifically for the new specifications for Advanced Level Biology for teaching from September 2000.
Growth, Development and Reproduction has been endorsed by OCR for use with the OCR Biology specification A. It provides full coverage of the Biology option module of the same name. In combination with other books in the series it provides full coverage of the Advanced Level specifications.
Learning objectives are clearly defined, so that students know exactly what they need to learn. Self-assessment questions (with answers) and exam-style end-of-chapter exercises offer excellent opportunities for independent study. Chapter introductions and summaries provide the basis for structured revision. Full-colour illustration and student-friendly design make the science accessible to all.
Описание: This volume presents a collection of twenty-seven contributions, covering the whole of the research area in human growth and development. It is highly international in the provenance of both authors and subjects, from Kathmandu to Caracas, Oaxaca to Alice Springs. There are papers on the history of the study of human growth, on the modelling of individual growth curves, the construction of population growth reference curves, growth as a measure of population well-being, secular trend, and the much neglected subject of the relation between mental and physical development.
Описание: It is generally accepted that the earliest human ancestors grew more like apes than like humans today. If they did so, and we are now different, when, how and why did our modern growth patterns evolve? This book focuses on species within the genus Homo to investigate the evolutionary origins of characteristic human patterns and rates of craniofacial and postcranial growth and development, and to explore unique ontogenetic patterns within each fossil species. Experts examine growth patterns found within available Plio-Pleistocene hominid samples, and analyse variation in ontogenetic patterns and rates of development in recent modern humans in order to provide a comparative context for fossil hominid studies. Presenting studies of some of the newer juvenile fossil specimens and information on Homo antecessor, this book will provide a rich data source with which anthropologists and evolutionary biologists can address the questions posed above.
Описание: "AN INVALUABLE ARCHIVE" Nature The Human Fossil Record series is the most authoritative and comprehensive documentation of the fossil evidence relevant to the study of our evolutionary past. It fills the critical need for a complete resource that provides detailed morphological descriptions based on uniformly applied protocols, along with all new photographs taken exclusively for the series. This second volume covers the craniodental remains from Africa and Asia attributed to the genus Homo. In this monumental and groundbreaking new series, the authors use clearly defined terminology and descriptive protocols that are applied uniformly throughout. Organized alphabetically by site name with detailed morphological descriptions and original, expertly taken photographs, each entry features : Morphology Location information History of discovery Previous systematic assessments of the fossils Geological, archaeological, and faunal contexts Dating References to the primary literature The Human Fossil Record series is truly a must-have reference for anyone interested in the study of human evolution.
Описание: This landmark publication provides the first comprehensive site-by-site compendium of uniform descriptions and original photographs of all fossils that document the human evolutionary past. Compiled by two of the most renowned experts in the field, this book offers morphological descriptions of the genus Homo in Europe.
Описание: Addresses the question of the speciation of modern Homo sapiens. The subject raises profound questions about the nature of the species, our defining characteristic (it is suggested it is language), and the brain changes and their genetic basis that make us distinct.
Автор: Crow, T. J. Название: The Speciation of Modern Homo Sapiens ISBN: 0197263119 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780197263112 Издательство: Oxford Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 2876 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка.
Описание: This is the first volume to address directly the question of the speciation of modern Homo sapiens. The subject raises profound questions about the nature of the species, our defining characteristic (it is suggested it is language), and the brain changes and their genetic basis that make us distinct. The British Academy and the Academy of Medical Sciences have brought together experts from palaeontology, archaeology, linguistics, psychology, genetics and evolutionary theory to present evidence and theories at the cutting edge of our understanding of these issues. These essays will be vital reading for anyone interested in the nature and origins of the species, and specifically human abilities.

Описание: Offers descriptions, photographs, and an analysis of the fossil vertebrates - from elephants and hyenas to humans - from the Daka Member of the Bouri Formation of the Afar, a place renowned for an abundant and lengthy record of human ancestors.
Описание: Mitochondrial DNA is one of the most explored genetic systems because of what it can tell us about the human past. This volume takes a unique perspective,
presenting the disparate strands that must be tied together to exploit this system. From molecular biology to anthropolo
y, statistics to ancient DNA, this first volume of three presents the global picture of human mitochondrial DNA variation.
It takes a critical look at the field, flagging the
problems, as well as the successes, and always placing the mitochondrial phylogeny centre stage.
