Biological Anthropology

Biological anthropology is broadly defined as encompassing the present and past nature and evolution of humankind and other primates. Our faculty are particularly strong in dental anthropology.We offer training in evolutionary theory, paleoanthropology, dental analysis, bioarcheology, comparative morphology, and environmental adaptation. Faculty use a range of analytical tools, including GIS, image analysis, and comparative morphometrics, and are actively engaged in bioarcheological, paleontological, and primatological fieldwork. Our biological anthropology laboratory facilities are competitive with any in the world.
