Primate Evolution and Human Origins compiles, for the first time, the major ideas and publications that have shaped our current view of the evolutionary biology of the primates and the origin of the human line. Designed for freshmen-to-graduate students in anthropology, paleontology, and biology, the book is a unique collection of classic papers, culled from the past 20 years of research. It is also an important reference for academicians and researchers, as it covers the entire scope of primate and human evolution (with an emphasis on the fossil record). A comprehensive bibliography cites over 2000 significant articles not found in the main text.

Сторінка 3 - The popular name of ' treeshrew ' for these animals is hardly descriptive of their habits, as, in the majority of species, at any rate, it is quite exceptional to see one anywhere than on the ground, among the roots of trees or on low bushes. The jungle near Changi, Singapore, was an exceedingly good trapping ground, and out of 70 or 80 traps set every night hardly one was found unsprung or without an occupant next morning. Six or seven of these shrews were usually thus captured and many more were...
