9780120455904: An Introduction to Human Evolutionary Anatomy

An anthropologist and an anatomist have combined their skills in this book to provide students and research workers with the essentials of anatomy and the means to apply these to investigations into hominid form and function. Using basic principles and relevant bones, conclusions can be reached regarding the probable musculature, stance, brain size, age, weight, and sex of a particular fossil specimen. The sort of deductions which are possible are illustrated by reference back to contemporary apes and humans, and a coherent picture of the history of hominid evolution appears. Written in a clear and concise style and beautifully illustrated, An Introduction to Human Evolutionary Anatomy is a basic reference for all concerned with human evolution as well as a valuable companion to both laboratory practical sessions and new research using fossil skeletons.

Book Description:

The First Comprehensive Description of Hominid Form and Function

From the Back Cover:

For students of Human Evolution the fossil evidence of skeletal remains is a prime source of information from which to reconstruct the form and lifestyle of the early hominids. But how is this evidence to be fully and properly used by students with little or no anatomical training?
In this book an anthropologist and an anatomist have combined their skills to provide students and research workers with the essentials of anatomy and the means to apply these to investigations into hominid form and function. Armed with the basic principles and relevant bones conclusions can be reached regarding the probable musculature, stance, brain size, age, weight and sex of a particular fossil specimen. The sort of deductions which are possible are illustrated by reference back to contemporary apes and humans and a coherent picture of the history of hominid evolution emerges.
Written in a clear and concise style and profusely illustrated, this book is a basic reference for all concerned with human evolution and a valuable companion both to laboratory practical sessions and to new research using fossil skeletons.
