Explore the origin of our species: Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution
Date:4/13/2011

The origin and evolution of humanity, from early hominid to dominant species, is the defining story not only of mankind, but of our planet. To chronicle this epic narrative an internationally renowned team, led by Professor Bernard Wood from the George Washington University, presents the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution, a unique landmark which explores our understanding of mankind's ancient history.

Over two volumes and 5000 entries Professor Wood's team provide a authoritative, comprehensive and interdisciplinary A to Z of the important scientific terms, principles and controversies which underpin our understanding of the great ape clade of the Tree of Life.

"There is still much to discover about our ancient past and much that remains open to interpretation, conjecture and debate," said Professor Wood. "The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution, the first title of its kind, reveals what we know, and what we still have to learn, improving our understanding of how we evolved."

Advances in genetics and molecular biology have allowed scientists to look at existing fossil evidence in new ways. These advances are covered alongside general evolutionary principles which explain the pattern and process of evolution, fossil and archaeological evidence, and climatic and ecological context.

The comprehensive two volumes and the companion website, which features additional material and updates, makes the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution an invaluable resource for life and natural scientists, archaeologists, physical anthropologists and all those who wish to explore the epic history of the evolution of our species.
