Boyd and I have coauthored a textbook entitled How Humans Evolved which
is designed for use in introductory classes in human evolution and biological
anthropology. This text differs from others in several ways:
- A more thorough treatment of
evolutionary theory, including discussions of the evolution of quantitative
characters, kin selection, sexual selection, life history evolution, and
parent offspring conflict.
- A modern behavioral-ecological
discussion of primate behavior.
- An extensive treatment of evolutionary
psychology and human behavioral ecology.
The fifth edition of How Humans
Evolved (2009) is now available. The book is also available as an e-book,
and instructors can create custom e-texts with a selected set of chapters.
