The story of the human body : evolution, health, and disease by Daniel Lieberman( Book )

59 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author, a Harvard evolutionary biologist presents an account of how the human body has evolved over millions of years, examining how an increasing disparity between the needs of Stone Age bodies and the realities of the modern world are fueling a paradox of greater longevity and chronic disease. It illuminates the major transformations that contributed key adaptations to the body: the rise of bipedalism; the shift to a non-fruit-based diet; the advent of hunting and gathering, leading to our superlative endurance athleticism; the development of a very large brain; and the incipience of cultural proficiencies. The author also elucidates how cultural evolution differs from biological evolution, and how our bodies were further transformed during the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. While these ongoing changes have brought about many benefits, they have also created conditions to which our bodies are not entirely adapted, the author argues, resulting in the growing incidence of obesity and new but avoidable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. The author proposes that many of these chronic illnesses persist and in some cases are intensifying because of 'dysevolution, ' a pernicious dynamic whereby only the symptoms rather than the causes of these maladies are treated. And finally, he advocates the use of evolutionary information to help nudge, push, and sometimes even compel us to create a more salubrious environment. -- From publisher's web site
The evolution of the human head by Daniel Lieberman( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. In one sense, human heads function much like those of other mammals. We use them to chew, smell, swallow, think, hear, and so on. But, in other respects, the human head is quite unusual. Unlike other animals, even our great ape cousins, our heads are short and wide, very big brained, snoutless, largely furless, and perched on a short, nearly vertical neck. Daniel E. Lieberman sets out to explain how the human head works, and why our heads evolved in this peculiarly human way. Exhaustively researched and years in the making, this innovative book documents how the many components of the head function, how they evolved since we diverged from the apes, and how they interact in diverse ways both functionally and developmentally, causing them to be highly integrated. This integration not only permits the head's many units to accommodate each other as they grow and work, but also facilitates evolutionary change. Lieberman shows how, when, and why the major transformations evident in the evolution of the human head occurred. The special way the head is integrated, Lieberman argues, made it possible for a few developmental shifts to have had widespread effects on craniofacial growth, yet still permit the head to function exquisitely. This is the first book to explore in depth what happened in human evolution by integrating principles of development and functional morphology with the hominin fossil record. The Evolution of the Human Head will permanently change the study of human evolution and has widespread ramifications for thinking about other branches of evolutionary biology
Accounting for climate change : uncertainty in greenhouse gas inventories : verification, compliance, and trading by Daniel Lieberman( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted to and removed from the atmosphere is high on both political and scientific agendas internationally. As increasing international concern and cooperation aim at policy-oriented solutions to the climate change problem, several issues have begun to arise regarding verification and compliance under both proposed and legislated schemes meant to reduce the human-induced global climate impact. The approaches to addressing uncertainty discussed in this volume attempt to improve national inventories or to provide a basis for the standardization of inventory estimates to enable comparison of emissions and emission changes across countries. Several authors use detailed uncertainty analyses to enforce the current structure of the emissions trading system while others attempt to internalize high levels of uncertainty by tailoring the emissions trading market rules. In all approaches, uncertainty analysis is regarded as a key component of national GHG inventory analyses. Topics of interest include: -national greenhouse gas emission inventories -bottom-up versus top-down emission analyses -signal detection and analysis techniques -verification and compliance issues -role of uncertainty in emissions trading schemes -compliance and emissions trading under the Kyoto Protocol Assessment of uncertainty can help improve inventories and manage risk. Through recognizing the importance of identifying and quantifying uncertainties, great strides can be made in the process of Accounting for Climate Change
The story of the human body : evolution, health, and disease by Daniel Lieberman( Recording )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a book that illuminates, as never before, the evolutionary story of the human body, Daniel Lieberman deftly examines the five major transformations which contributed key adaptations to the body: the advent of bipedalism; the shift to a non-fruit based diet; the rise of hunting and gathering and of the species as comprised of superlative endurance athletes; the development of a very large brain; and the incipience of modern cultural abilities

Exercised : why something we never evolved to do is healthy and rewarding by Daniel Lieberman( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This highly engaging landmark work, a natural history of exercise--by the author of the best seller The Story of the Human Body--seeks to answer a fundamental question: were you born to run or rest The first three parts of Exercised roughly follow the evolutionary story of human physical activity and inactivity, even as each chapter shatters a particular myth about exercise. Because we cannot understand physical activity without understanding its absence, Part One begins with physical inactivity. What are our bodies doing when we take it easy, including when we sit or sleep? Part Two explores physical activities that require speed, strength, and power, such as sprinting, lifting, and fighting. Part Three surveys physical activities that involve endurance, such as walking, running, or dancing, as well as their effect on aging. Part Four considers how anthropological and evolutionary approaches can help us exercise better in the modern world. How can we more effectively manage to exercise, and in what ways? To what extent, how, and why do different types and durations of exercise help prevent or treat the major diseases that are likely to make us sick and kill us? --

The perfect runner( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did our ancestors survive the shift from trees to land? How did Homo sapiens evolve to dominate the planet? How did our ancestors hunt before they developed weapons? The answer, you'll be amazed to learn, is that humans became nature's perfect endurance runners. From Africa's Great Rift Valley to the highlands of Ethiopia, from the most remote place in Arctic Siberia to one of the world's toughest ultra marathons in the Canadian Rockies, anthropologist and host Niobe Thompson takes us on a journey that weaves cutting-edge science with gripping adventure, and asks what today's runners can learn from our evolutionary past. Finally understand the science and sport of barefoot running. Meet Harvard's barefoot professor - Dr. Daniel Lieberman - the father of the barefoot running movement, and learn how running was key to the evolution of modern humans. In a pioneering study of running biomechanics, Lieberman has shown how modern running shoes encourage a running style humans were never evolved to withstand, and which likely underpins the epidemic in running injuries we see today.

Free-living physical activity and energy expenditure of rural children and adolescents in the Nandi region of Kenya by Robert Ojiambo( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Purpose : To examine the relationship between physical activity and energy demands in children and adolescents with highly active lifestyles. Methods : Physical activity patterns of 30 rural Kenyan children and adolescents (14 ± 1 years, mean ± SD) with median body mass index (BMI) z -score = −1.06 [−3.29–0.67] median [range] were assessed by accelerometry over 1 week. Daily energy expenditure (DEE), activity-induced energy expenditure (AEE) and physical activity level (PAL) were simultaneously determined using doubly-labelled water (DLW). Active commuting to school was assessed by global positioning system. Results : Mean DEE, AEE and PAL were 12.2 ± 3.4, 5.7 ± 3.0 MJ/day and 2.3 ± 0.6, respectively. A model combining body mass, average accelerometer counts per minute and time in light activities predicted 45% of the variance in DEE ( p  < 0.05) with a standard error of DEE estimate of 2.7 MJ/day. Furthermore, AEE accounted for ∼47% of DEE. Distance to school was not related to variation in DEE, AEE or PAL and there was no association between active commuting and adiposity. Conclusion : High physical activity levels were associated with much higher levels of energy expenditure than observed in Western societies. These results oppose the concept of physical activity being stable and constrained in humans
