About this book

Thin on the Ground: Neandertal Biology, Archeology & Ecology synthesizes the current knowledge about our sister species the Neandertals, combining data from a variety of disciplines to reach a cohesive theory behind Neandertal low population densities and relatively low rate of technological innovation. Thin on the Ground: Neanderthal Biology, Archaeology & Ecology highlights and contrasts the differences between Neandertals and early modern humans and explores the morphological, physiological, and behavioral adaptive solutions which led to the extinction of the Neandertals and the population expansion of modern humans.

Written by a world recognized expert in physical anthropology, Thin on the Ground: Neanderthal Biology, Archaeology & Ecology will be a must have title for anyone interested in the rise and fall of the Neandertals.
