Anthropology | Miocene Apes & Early Humans
B600 | 16415 | Hunt


Miocene Apes is an upperclass/graduate level seminar targeted at
advanced bioanthropology undergraduate majors and graduates whose
research interests include primate ecology, functional anatomy and
human evolution.  Readings will include introductory, general
background readings from John Fleagle's Primate Adaptation and
Evolution, after which the seminar will read primary literature
describing and interpreting Miocene ape and the earliest hominin
fossils.   Familiarity with primate taxonomy, human paleontology and
evolutionary theory will be helpful, but these subject areas will be
reviewed in readings.  An approximately 7,000-word paper will
constitute half of the course grade.
