    Human evolution is the evolutionary process that led to the emergence of anatomically modern humans, beginning with the evolutionary history of primates—in particular genus Homo—and leading to the emergence of Homo sapiens as a distinct species of the hominid family, the great apes. Evolution: The Human Story is a wonderful book. It is beautiful and compels you to keep reading. It may not be an in-depth book for someone who wants to learn the finer points of evolution, nor does it have to be, but it is a ton of fun. My 4 and 8 year old children love looking at it with me and that is, in fact, one of the reasons I purchased s:

    Evolution in organisms occurs through changes in heritable traits—the inherited characteristics of an organism. In humans, for example, eye colour is an inherited characteristic and an individual might inherit the "brown-eye trait" from one of their parents. Inherited traits are controlled by genes and the complete set of genes within an organism's genome (genetic material) is called its. Human embryonic development is similar to that of other vertebrates, more like From the study of ontogeny, we discover clues about the transformation of species through evolutionary change. – adapted from The Human Evolution Coloring Book, 2d ed., by Adrienne L.

"Evolution: a developmental approach" is a fascinating look at the complex subject of evolutionary developmental biology "Evo-devo".

This is a relatively new subject and scientists and authors have argued over how to use and portray this new approach which fuses the two subjects of development and evolution s: 9.

A biocultural approach is taken to the study of the evolution of human growth and development. The biocultural perspective of human development focuses on the constant interaction taking place. Evolutionary Perspectives on Human Development, Second Edition considers the role of evolutionary theory in the field of developmental psychology to examine key topics of individual human development.

This unique book fills an important gap in the literature, applying evolutionary models to human development by focusing on central development.
