The skull of Australopithecus afarensis by William H Kimbel( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is the most in-depth account of the fossil skull anatomy and evolutionary significance of the 3.6-3.0 million year old early human species Australopithecus afarensis. Knowledge of this species is pivotal to understanding early human evolution, because 1) the sample of fossil remains of A. afarensis is among the most extensive for any early human species, and the majority of remains are of taxonomically informative skulls and teeth; 2) the wealth of material makes A. afarensis an indispensable point of reference for the interpretation of other fossil discoveries; 3) the species occupie
The Australopithecine face by Yoel Rak( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Australopithecine Face provides an introduction to the interpretation of the facial skeleton of Australopithecus, a part of the anatomy well represented in the African collections. This book presents important morphological differences between the early hominid taxa and interprets them in a biochemical, functional, evolutionary framework. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the description of the face of the four species of Australopithecus, extending to comparisons both within the genus and with other primates. This text then provides an analysis of
Human paleontology and prehistory : contributions in honor of Yoel Rak( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to present original and though-provoking essays in human paleontology and prehistory, which are at the forefront of human evolutionary research, in honor of Professor Yoel Rak, a leading scholar in paleoanthropology. The volume presents a collection of original papers contributed by many of Yoel's friends and colleagues from all over the globe. Contributions in the volume fall roughly into three broad categories: Reflections on some of the broad theoretical questions of evolution, and especially about human evolution; early hominins, with special emphasis on Australopithecus afarensis and Paranthropus; and the Neanderthals, that intriguing group of our closest extinct relatives. Within and across these categories, nearly every paper addresses combinations of methodological, analytical and theoretical questions that are pertinent to the whole human evolutionary time span. This book will appeal most to scholars and advanced students in paleoanthropology, human paleontology and prehistoric archaeology"--Publisher's description
