    Designed for both introductory primatology courses and upper-division primate behavior and conservation courses, Primates in Perspective features original essays by more than 60 leading researchers, providing wide-ranging and contemporary coverage of all the major areas of primatology. Featuring forty-seven original essays by seventy leading researchers, Primates in Perspective, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive and contemporary overview of all major areas of primatology. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the second edition offers a diversity of theoretical positions on such topics as reproduction, ecology, and social behavior and intelligence.

    Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa about , years ago. We are now the only living members of what many zoologists refer to as the human tribe, Hominini, but there is .   Besides similar anatomy and behavior, there is DNA evidence. It confirms that humans are primates and that modern humans and chimpanzees diverged from a common ancestor between 8 and 6 million years ago. There is only about a percent genetic difference between modern humans and chimpanzees throughout much of their genetic code.

    Human Evolution. The family Hominidae of order Primates includes the hominoids: the great apes (Figure 3).Evidence from the fossil record and from a comparison of human and chimpanzee DNA suggests that humans and chimpanzees diverged from a common hominoid ancestor approximately 6 million years ago. The evolutionary history of the primates can be traced back 65 million years. One of the oldest known primate-like mammal species, the Plesiadapis, came from North America; another, Archicebus, came from China. Other similar basal primates were widespread in Eurasia and Africa during the tropical conditions of the Paleocene and Eocene. Purgatorius is the genus of the four extinct species.

It combines a perceptive selection from the primary literature with introductory essays which orient students to critical issues and problems. The book can be used as a primary text in courses on primate and human evolution and as a supplementary text in a wide range of physical anthropology courses." —David by: Primate phylogeny from a human perspective: a study based on the immunological technique of comparative determinant analysis (CDA): with 32 tables Author: Klausdieter Bauer ; Arnd Schreiber.

Book Description. This book challenges the assumption that morphological data are inherently unsuitable for phylogeny reconstruction, argues that both molecular and morphological phylogenies should play a major role in systematics, and provides the most comprehensive review of the comparative anatomy, homologies and evolution of the head, neck, pectoral and upper limb muscles of primates.

The book lead readers from an appreciation of the complexities of monkey and ape societies to an understanding of the sophistication of modern human communities; this transition is accompanied by an organizationl shift from biological kin selection to cultural group by: The Primate Origins of Human Nature (Volume 3 in The Foundations of Human Biology series) blends several elements from evolutionary biology as applied to primate behavioral ecology and primate psychology, classical physical anthropology and evolutionary psychology of humans.

Primates in Perspective, Second Edition, is ideal for introductory primatology courses and can also be used in upper-division behavior and conservation courses. Additionally, it is an essential. Determinant formulas for up to 22 serum proteins from nineteen species in seven Eutherian orders (Chiroptera, Carnivora, Artiodactyla, Perrissodactyl, Rodentia, Proboscidea, Xenarthra) and Metatheria were derived by comparative determinant analysis from a primate (human) perspective.

Such insights are essential in ongoing and future comparative genomic investigation of adaptation and selection in humans and across primates.

The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Life is a science book by Richard Dawkins and Yan Wong on the subject of evolution, which follows the path of humans backwards through evolutionary history, describing some of humanity's cousins as they converge on their common ancestors.

It was first published inand substantially updated in As a group, primates have brains that are approximately three times the size of other mammals (relative to body size). Human brain sizes, in turn, are some –3 times those of other primates (Martin, ).In caloric terms, this means that brain metabolism accounts for ~20%–25% of RMR in an adult human body, as compared to about 8%–10% in other primate species, and roughly 3%–5% for.

He is the author or co-author of 19 books, ranging from a major monograph on the hominid cranial remains from Koobi Fora to the non-technical Human Evolution, A Very Short Introduction, and more than refereed scientific articles and book chapters.

His research interests are taxonomy, phylogeny reconstruction and comparative morphology.Primate Evolution and Human Origins compiles, for the first time, the major ideas and publications that have shaped our current view of the evolutionary biology of the primates and the origin of the human line.

Designed for freshmen-to-graduate students in anthropology, paleontology, and biology, the book is a unique collection of classic.Rejecting the idea of a human evolutionary leap as contradicting Darwin’s theory, Wilson shows how the continuity of the genus Homo within the order Primates is to be found in generalization.

Man was and is a promising primate, of endless potential coupled with a vulnerable need to exchange promises.
