Summary "Comprehensive handbook that takes a multifaceted and multidisciplinary approach to palaeoanthropology. ... Volume 1 reviews principles, methods, and approaches, recounting recent advances and state-of-the-art knowledge in phylogenetic analysis, palaeoecology and evolutionary theory and philosophy. Volume 2 is devoted to primate origins, evolution, behaviour, and adaptive variety, emphasizing integration of fossil data with the considerable contemporary knowledge of the behaviour and ecology of living primates in natural environments. Volume 3 deals with the fossil and molecular evidence for the evolution of Homo sapiens and its fossil relatives."--About this book.
