Early Hominin Paleoecology free pdf An introduction to the multidisciplinary field of hominin paleoecology for advanced undergraduate students and beginning graduate students, 'Early Hominin Paleoecology' offers an up to date review of the relevant literature, exploring new research and synthesizing old and new ideas. Recent advances in the field and the laboratory are not only improving our understanding of human evolution but are also transforming it. Given the increasing specialization of the individual fields of study in hominin paleontology, communicating research results and data is difficult, especially to a broad audience of graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and the interested public. 'Early Hominin Paleoecology' provides a good working knowledge of the subject while also presenting a solid grounding in the sundry ways this knowledge has been constructed. The book is divided into three sectionsclimate and environment (with a particular focus on the latter), adaptation and behavior, and modern analogs and modelsand features contributors from various fields of study, including archaeology, primatology, paleoclimatology, sedimentology, and geochemistry. Early Hominin Paleoecology is an accessible introduction into this fascinating and ever-evolving field and will be essential to any student interested in pursuing research in human paleoecology.
