About the book
This book aims to collect the contributions related to biological anthropology by presenting different points of view related to different research areas of this discipline. This book will offer a wide diversity of topics covering the broader subjects of Biological Anthropology (in particular Paleoanthropology, Physical Anthropology, Molecular Anthropology, Human Biology, Human Behavioural Ecology) and provide a wide-ranging sample of applications, methods, models in this field. In recent years it has been possible to notice the development of physical anthropology in biological anthropology. Biological anthropology today is an integrative mixture of knowledge that combines data and information from the fossil records, genetics, studies on human evolution. Biological anthropology has become increasingly interdisciplinary over the last 30 years. For example, Molecular Biology, Ecology and geophysics were added to its core disciplines as the study of the human skeleton and the evolution of primates. This edited volume will be an important resource for the scientific community that belongs to this discipline such as evolutionary biologists, ecologists, medical researchers or a starting point for exploring these practices by students.
