In this graduate seminar on human biology, we will look at major themes and big ideas in human biology and human reproductive ecology. This will include looking at human growth and development, biological variation, and adaptation to unusual and challenging ecologies (such as high altitude). We will read a variety of texts on human evolution, human reproductive ecology of males and females, childhood development, and study the history of research in human biology. The course will also look at the ways in which human biology is a key part of biocultural anthropology and how insights into human biology and variation can contribute to our understandings of human evolution in a biocultural perspective.
