Summary

This workbook and laboratory manual has been designed to complement a wide variety of introductory level laboratory courses in biological anthropology. It provides optimum flexibility to suit most laboratory environments. It is organized into four sections, to reflect the organization of the typical introductory biological anthropology course: genetics and evolution, the human skeleton, non human primates, and our fossil ancestors.

Author Biography

Samantha Hens is an associate professor of anthropology at California State University in Sacramento. Her research interests cover an array of topics in biological anthropology including osteology and skeletal biology, skeletal growth and development, morphometrics, functional anatomy, human evolution and forensic anthropology.  She has published several journal articles on stature estimation in fossil hominids and sex estimation from the human pelvis and skull. Her most recent area of study has focused on three-dimensional analyses of growth and the development of sexual dimorphism in orangutan crania, and comparisons of sexual dimorphism between the orangutan and the gorilla. Samantha received the Outstanding Teacher Award in her college in 2006. She lives in northern California where she actively enjoys the outdoors and practices yoga.
