This course explores human evolution from a biosocial perspective, with special emphasis on our evolutionary trajectory over the last five to seven million years. The course explores issues fundamental to understanding humans’ unique place in nature including: evolutionary mechanisms; primate evolution, morphology and behaviour; humans’ relationships to recent ancestors and associated reconstruction methods; and modern human biological and behavioural diversity. It is the Stage II core for students in Biological Anthropology and is a prerequisite for continuing on to Stage III.
