ANTH627 - CRNT TPCS IN BIO ANTH: PRIMATE BEHAVIOR AND ECOLOGY
Humans are characterized by several distinctive life history features, e.g. large babies, late age at puberty and first reproduction, cessation of menstruation long before death, and a long life span. In addition, our reproductive decisions are heavily influenced by society and culture. This seminar will explore human life history from an evolutionary ecology and biocultural perspective, and will analyze the possible contribution of this approach to other disciplines such as demography, sociology, medicine, and public health. We will read and discuss seminal papers and recent developments on the topic.
