No description available, This new edition of a widely adopted primary and supplementary text explores human adaptations to environments over time It is biologically and culturally sophisticated drawing on an impressive array of archaeological and paleontological research Campbell proceeds from earlier simpler biomes to later more complex ones examining selected aspects of the prehistory and history of the human species em Human Ecology em offers a succinct introduction to the history of these adaptations within ecosystems a shared concern among anthropologists biologists environmentalists and the general reader br br In the years since this book was first published the problems that the human species has faced have become more serious As predicted world population has rapidly increased and with it starvation malnutrition and disease Our precious environment is being devastated In particular the tropical rain forests our richest resource are being cut and burned at an alarming rate with the accompanying degradation of the forest soils Their flora and fauna including their human inhabitants are being destroyed All this is being done for short term financial gain without any long term planning or understanding of the risks involved br br There are no simple and humane short term solutions to the central problem of increasing population pressure In the long term the only hope of making possible a life of quality for all rather than a life of starvation and squalor is through education It is essential that we understand the limits that exist to the earth s productivity and the overriding importance of maintaining richly diversified fauna and flora If we understand how we arrived at this life threatening situation the resolution will become clear Non violent and viable solutions do exist and can be implemented but the human race first must understand and face up to the nature of its frightening predicament, In this new fourth edition Campbell has revised and updated his classic introduction to the field i Human Evolution i synthesizes the major findings of modern research and theory and presents a complete and integrated account of the evolution of human beings New developments in microbiology and recent fossil records are incorporated into the enormous range of this volume with the resulting text as lucid and comprehensive as earlier editions The fourth edition retains the thematic structure and organization of the third with its cogent treatment of human variability and speciation primate locomotion and nonverbal communication and the evolution of language supported by more than detailed illustrations and an expanded and updated glossary and bibliography As in prior editions the book treats evolution as a concomitant development of the main behavioral and functional complexes of the genus i Homo i among them motor control and locomotion mastication and digestion the senses and reproduction It analyzes each complex in terms of its changing function and continually stresses how the separate complexes evolve i interdependently i over the long course of the human journey All these aspects are placed within the context of contemporary evolutionary and genetic theory analyses of the varied extensions of the fossil record and contemporary primatology and comparative morphology The result is a primary text for undergraduate and graduate courses one that will also serve as required reading for anthropologists biologists and nonspecialists with an interest in human evolution, Just over one hundred and thirty years ago Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex developed remarkably accurate conclusions about man s ancestry based on a review of general comparative anatomy and psychology in which he regarded sexual selection as a necessary part of the evolutionary process But the attention of biologists turned to the more general concept of natural selection in which sexual selection plays a complex role that has been little understood This volume significantly broadens the scope of modern evolutionary biology by looking at this important and long neglected concept of great importance br br In this book which is the first full discussion of sexual selection since leading biologists bring modern genetic theory and behavior observation to bear on the subject The distinguished authors consider many aspects of sexual selection in many species including man within the context of contemporary evolutionary theory and research The result is a remarkably original and well rounded view of the whole concept that will be invaluable especially to students of evolution and human sexual behavior The lucid authority of the contributors and the importance of the topic will interest all who share in man s perennial fascination with his own history br br The book will be of central importance to a wide variety of professionals including biologists anthropologists and geneticists It will be an invaluable supplementary text for courses in vertebrate biology theory of evolution genetics and physical anthropology It is especially important with the emergence of alternative explanations of human development under the rubric of creationism and doctrines of intelligent design
