Discover the best of biological anthropology: From its earliest foundations to its most current innovations.


Over the past 40 years, the study of biological anthropology has rapidly evolved from focusing on just physical anthropology to including the study of the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior.
