This text introduces physical anthropology, the science of human biological evolution and variation. Divided into four parts, it addresses the major questions that concern biological anthropologists--"What are humans?" "Where are our origins?" "How did we evolve, and are we still evolving?" and "What does the future hold for the human species?--with an emphasis on hypothesis testing and the relationship between biology and culture.
