EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Human biology encompasses the central branches of the lifesciences (anatomy, physiology, genetics, and biochemistry) as the basis for comparative, evolutionary, and cross-cultural studies of human populations. Human Biology: An Evolutionary and Biocultural Perspective reviews evolutionary, cultural, ecological, and genetic perspectives, and then explains how these data are used to reconstruct theories of human population, human adaptation to climate, infectious diseases, and food availability. World-renowned authors examine the human life span, including aging and the influence of biological and behavioral factors on growth variation. Although human biology relies heavily upon an evolutionary perspective to explain variation through space and time, it also regards the effect that human culture has had on our biology as crucial. This comprehensive introduction to the field of human biology covers genetic variation, variation related to climate, infectious and noninfectious diseases, growth, and demography. In addition, Human Biology: An Evolutionary and Biocultural Perspective is designed to maximize reader-friendliness, with glossary terms highlighted within the text and chapter summaries. Human Biology also includes: Boxed text within the chapters, which clearly explains the methodology used by fieldworkers, laboratory researchers, and statisticians Numerous illustrations, summaries, key references, and a thorough glossary This extensive guide to human biology is an essential resource for all professionals and academics in the fields of human biology, genetics, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and population biology.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Oxford Handbook of Economics and Human Biology introduces the scholarly community to the relationship between economic processes and human biology. A society’s biological well-being is important if one is to understand numerous aspects of political and economic developments: the outbreak of revolutions; the effect of industrialization and modernization on a population’s well-being; the demographic transition; and changes in the degree of social inequality by gender, social class, and geographic location. The contributions in this Handbook examine the various ways the economy affects human biological outcomes and, reciprocally, the impact of the latter on the former both over time and cross-sectionally. Another focus is on biological measures as inputs, such as how height and weight affect labor market outcomes and the role of genetic markers on economic variables. A third purpose is to introduce the reader to developmental aspects and policy, particularly correlates of malnutrition and poverty across the world.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Fine tuned for greater clarity and a more logical flow of ideas, Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY, Seventh Edition, presents core areas of human biology with a focused presentation that is ideal for non-majors. Highlighting biology's relevance, each chapter opens with an "Impacts, Issues" vignette on a human biology-related issue or research finding in the news, such as the obesity epidemic, vaccinations against bioweapons, and genetic engineering. Within the chapter, students see how basic concepts help them think critically about the issue. In addition, each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question invites students to weigh in on a current issue and deepen their understanding through online exercises. Students will find relevant materials cross referenced from chapter to chapter, reinforcing how biological concepts build on one another throughout the book. The text's carefully integrated instructor and student resources--ThomsonNOW' and JoinIn' on TurningPoint®--help you assess your students and make learning more interactive. For instructors, the PowerLecture multimedia manager saves time on lecture prep--with one DVD--by integrating all relevant resources in each chapter's Microsoft PowerPoint lecture, so there's no more hassling with multiple media files.
