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: 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 newest juvenile fossil specimens and information on
Homo antecessor, the newest species assigned to the genus, this book will provide a rich data source with which anthropologists and evolutionary biologists can address the questions
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: 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.
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.

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: It is widely assumed that the “nonclassical” nature of the Russian empire and its equally “nonclassical” modernity made Russian intellectuals immune to the racial obsessions of Western Europe and the United States. Homo Imperii corrects this perception by offering the first scholarly history of racial science in prerevolutionary Russia and the early Soviet Union. Marina Mogilner places this story in the context of imperial self-modernization, political and cultural debates of the epoch, different reformist and revolutionary trends, and the growing challenge of modern nationalism. By focusing on the competing centers of race science in different cities and regions of the empire, Homo Imperii introduces to English-language scholars the institutional nexus of racial science in Russia that exhibits the influence of imperial strategic relativism. Reminiscent of the work of anthropologists of empire such as Ann Stoler and Benedict Anderson, Homo Imperii reveals the complex imperial dynamics of Russian physical anthropology and contributes an important comparative perspective from which to understand the emergence of racial science in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe and America.
