Anthropology | Human Variation
B370 | 28698 | Muehlenbein


This course will examine physiological variation within and between
human populations in reference to ecological and evolutionary
principles such as adaptation and evolution by natual selection.  The
course will provide introductions to life history theory and
reproductive ecology, which will allow us to critically analyze the
genetic and environmental sources of physiological variation in
contemporary human populations.  Although the foci of this course are
based on evolutionary biology, readings are selected to reflect the
general interests of natural and social scientists alike.
