Human evolution : a very short introduction by Bernard A Wood( )

37 editions published between 1978 and 2019 in English and Italian and held by 2,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Very Short Introduction traces the history of our understanding of human evolution - taking the reader right up to the very latest fossil findings and the debates about what they mean." "Providing an 'insider's view' of current paleoanthropology, Bernard Wood explains how human fossils are found, analyzed, and interpreted, and what the latest advances in genetics and a range of other sciences can reveal about our earliest origins."--Jacket
The human foot : a companion to clinical studies by Leslie Klenerman( )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Human Foot, a collaboration between an orthopedic surgeon and a paleoanthropologist, starts by tracing the evolutionary history of feet all the way from their beginnings as fins to modern human feet. It presents the foot, a neglected but important region, taking into account advances in the study of evolution, imaging, physiology and biomechanics." "The text is an invaluable resource for orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, sports scientist, and podiatrists."--Jacket
Major topics in primate and human evolution( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wiley-Blackwell encyclopedia of human evolution by Bernard Wood( )

37 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive A to Z encyclopedia provides extensive coverage of important scientific terms related to improving our understanding of how we evolved. Specifically, the 5,000 entries cover evidence and methods used to investigate the relationships among the living great apes, evidence about what makes the behavior of modern humans distinctive, and evidence about the evolutionary history of that distinctiveness, as well as information about modern methods used to trace the recent evolutionary history of modern human populations. This text provides a resource for everyone studying the emergence of Homo sapiens"--
Food acquisition and processing in primates by David J Chivers( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book results from a two-day symposium and three-day workshop held in Cambridge between March 22nd and March 26th 1982 and sponsored by the Primate Society of Great Britain and the Anatomical Society of Great Britain and Ireland. More than 100 primatologists attended the symposium and some 35 were invited to participate in the workshop. Speakers from Prance, Germany, the Netherlands, South Africa and the U. S. A. , as weIl as the U. K. , were invited to contribute. In recent years feeling had strengthened that primatologists in Europe did not gather together sufficiently often. Distinctive tradit­ ions in primatology have developed in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy and the U. K. in particular, and it was feIt that attempts to blend them could only benefit primatology. Furthermore, studies of primate ecology, behaviour, anatomy, physiology and evolution have reached the points where further advances depend on inter-disciplinary collaboration. It was resolved to arrange a regular series of round­ table discussions on primate biology in Europe at the biennial meeting of the German Society for Anthropology and Human Genetics in Heidel­ berg in September 1979, where Holger Preuschoft organised sessions on primate ecology and anatomy. In June 1980 Michel Sakka convened a most effective working group in Paris to discuss cranial morphology and evolution. In 1982 it was the turn of the U. K
Wiley-blackwell student dictionary of human evolution by Bernhard Wood( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time, say 50 years ago, the only background you needed in order to appreciate what was known about human evolution was a familiarity with a relatively sparse hominid fossil record, what limited information there was about the context of the sites, some knowledge of gross anatomy and simple analytical methods, and an appreciation of general evolutionary principles. Times have changed. The fossil record has grown exponentially, imaging techniques have advanced dramatically, quantitative methods have burgeoned, molecular biology has revolutionized our understanding of genetics, evolution
Comparative anatomy and phylogeny of primate muscles and human evolution by Rui Diogo( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The combined anatomical materials provided in this book point out that modern humans have fewer head, neck, pectoral and upper limb muscles than most other living primates, but are consistent with the proposal that facial and vocal communication and specialized thumb movements have probably played an important role in recent human evolution. This book will be of interest to primatologists, comparative anatomists, functional morphologists, zoologists, physical anthropologists, and systematicians, as well as to medical students, physicians and researchers interested in understanding the origin
