This full-color atlas, featuring approximately 900 professional photographs, gives detailed coverage of a wide variety of subject matter that is unequalled in currently available textbooks and lab manuals. It is designed for all students taking courses in physical anthropology, human origins, biological anthropology, primate comparative anatomy, osteology, human evolution, and forensic pathology. It can be used in conjunction with your current textbook or original journal article readings to provide a visual representation of the material that your students study and discuss. It is both comparative and functional in its approach. It is a useful guide if your school has a good collection of osteological material and of fossil casts. Furthermore, it is an invaluable visual representation for students who do not have hands-on experience with specimens.
