Understanding early hominid behavioural ecology has been the subject of intense interest and remains a core issue in anthropology today. Early Hominid Behavioural Ecology reveals some of the latest research into this exciting and challenging area, with new looks at old questions.
The central topics explored in this volume include early hominid habitat preference and land use, procurement and processing of food and lithic materials, the use of fire, competitive interactions with carnivores, social organization and cognitive skills. Innovative methods and recent data presented here will provide a fuller understanding of the evolutionary ecology of Plio-Pleistocene hominids.
Most of the contributions to this volume evolved from papers presented at the Early Hominid Behavioural Ecology symposium, held at the 62nd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists in Toronto, 1993.
