Book Cover
A Companion to Paleoanthropology

A Companion to Paleoanthropology presents a compendium of readings representing the state of the art in our knowledge relating to the study of ancient humans as found in fossil hominid evidence. Contributions from top scholars in paleoanthropology and related fields offer accessible overviews of paleontological methods and research topics for established researchers, instructors, students, and non-professionals alike. These original essays define new trends and current interpretations of the paleoanthropological record. Chapters are organized into sections that survey the history and techniques of paleoanthropology, evaluate the fossil evidence and the current classification of hominids, and review the trends throughout ape and human evolution in cranial, postcranial, and brain evolution.

By presenting the latest findings and developments in the field, A Companion to Paleoanthropology represents an important contribution to our understanding of the current social discourse on human origins and evolution.
