ANTH 131 - Introduction to Physical Anthropology


Credits: 3

This course examines fundamental aspects of a physical nature of humans and human variability. It selectively reviews the long record of human biological adaptations that have existed from the appearance of the earliest Hominids up to the development of anatomically modern forms. Topics include principles of evolution, human variation and adaptability, non-human primate behavior, non-human osteology (study of the skeleton), and the human fossil record.
