About this book

Method and Practice in Biological Anthropology: A Workbook and Laboratory Manual for Introductory Courses complements a wide variety of introductory level laboratory courses in biological anthropology. It easily functions with a well-equipped laboratory, or it may be used as a primary source of photos and/or exercises, providing optimum flexibility to suit most laboratory environments. The book is organized into four sections, to reflect the organization of the typical introductory biological anthropology course: genetics and evolution, the human skeleton, non human primates, and our fossil ancestors. MySearchLab is a part of the Hens program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore biological anthropology in even greater depth.
