Evolution and Ecology

The Evolution and Ecology theme engages both biological anthropologists and archaeologists in research that addresses topics including the evolution of human behavior, cognition, and morphology, primate origins, human evolutionary ecology, adaptation to the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, and primate behavioral ecology.

Given wide-ranging interest in these issues, this theme engages anthropology faculty and students with other departments and schools of the university and with the broader public.

Take a look at the ongoing reseach page for more information on current research projects related to this theme.
