About this title

Synopsis:

When we look at primate evolution, we are looking at our own evolution as well. With this central theme in mind, this module, written by Bob Jurmain, explores the fossil history of primates over the last 60 million years. Using what they currently know about primate anatomy (teeth, limbs, etc.) and social behavior, students will learn to "flesh out" the bones and teeth that make up the evolutionary record of primate origins. In this way, the ecological adaptations and evolutionary relationships of these fossil forms to each other (and to contemporary primates) will become more meaningful. Also available online. See your Sales Representative for information on bundling the module for free with the text.

About the Author:

Robert Jurmain received an A.B. in Anthropology from UCLA and a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Harvard. He taught at San Jose State University from 1975 to 2004 and is now Professor Emeritus. During his teaching career, he taught courses in all major branches of physical anthropology, including osteology and human evolution, with the greatest concentration in general education teaching for introductory students. His research interests are skeletal biology of humans and non-human primates, paleopathology, and paleoanthropology. In addition to his three textbooks, which together have appeared in 30 editions, he is the author of STORIES FROM THE SKELETON: BEHAVIORAL RECONSTRUCTION IN HUMAN OSTEOLOGY (1999, Gordon Breach Publishers), as well as numerous articles in research journals.
