Albert Damon (Author), Romayne Timms (Illustrated by)

With a Foreword by W. W. Howells


This book is designed for introductory courses in physical anthropology or human biology where the emphasis is on human variation.

The author's major concern is not with topical issues such as organ transplants or genetic engineering, but rather with more comprehensive matters: the evolution and diversity of man, genetics and behavior, disease and aging, environmental adaptation,and population and ecology. By presenting the fundamentals of human biology within a theoretical framework, Human Biology and Ecology enables the reader to analyze contemporary problems and their proposed solutions in an informed and humanistic way.
