Biological Anthropology offers introductory anthropology students up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the foundations of the field, with a modern biological approach that includes modern innovations and discoveries in fields that have become major areas of research in recent years. This is the only book that integrates the foundations and the most current innovations in the field from the ground up.  As the first Canadian Biological Anthropology text, this book offers significant coverage of the research of Canadian biological anthropologists and affiliated scientists, and includes an entire chapter devoted to human skeletal biology and forensic anthropology, which are taught as part of the Canadian curriculum but not found in American texts.

From the Back Cover:

Biological Anthropology is an introductory text for the study of physical anthropology.  It provides students with up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the foundations of the field, with a modern biological approach that includes modern innovations and discoveries.

 

From the preface:

 

In a field changing as rapidly as human evolutionary science is today, we feel it is critical for active researchers to produce textbooks that serve the needs of students. In addition to the strong biological orientation of the book, we try to frame questions about humankind in light of our understanding of culture and the ways in which culture interacts with biology to create the template for human nature.

 

This first Canadian edition presents Canadian data and examples (on topics such as cloning, obesity, and DNA fingerprinting) and incorporates the results of research being done by Canadian biological anthropologists and affiliated scientists. In addition, the Canadian edition includes a chapter on human skeletal biology (Chapter 18), a topic not traditionally covered in introductory biological anthropology texts.

She is a two-term former President of the Canadian Association of Physical Anthropology.
