Primary Instructor:

This course provides technical training in how to carry out laboratory research in Biological Anthropology focused on paleoecological context of hominin/hominoid evolution. This semester, the goal of the course will be to explore the interface of paleoecology and neoecology, primarily through biogeochemical analyses, to evaluate and test theories or ideas regarding evolutionary driving forces.. The course emphasizes project development, hypothesis generation and testing, data collection/analysis, and writing. In the lab, students will develop various group and/or individual projects that utilize isotopic applications to address anthropologic questions or issues relating to the evolutionary trajectory of our ancestors.
