The goal of this course is to understand human growth and development in an evolutionary context. How did our unique life history come to be, and how is it being shaped by the modern environment? We will trace human growth from prenatal development through birth, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Throughout, we will consider the role of energy in determining patterns of growth, reproduction, and aging, and gain insights about the evolution of human life history through comparisons to other hominins and nonhuman primates. We will also discuss contemporary issues such as the secular trends in both skeletal and reproductive maturation; efforts to extend fertility and lifespan; and the effects of environmental influences, including climate, stress, and nutrition, on human health and longevity.
