This book is about the process of doing research in human biology. Seasoned researchers share their experiences working on problems of interest to biological anthropologists, including environmental stresses, population genetics, parasitic vectors and vital records. They describe obstacles encountered and successful strategies employed in their own studies and in those of others that may be of use to beginning researchers in this area.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a very good and useful book. I recommend it to graduate students and new professional anthropologists interested in, or doing, human biology, and to those engaged in their training or supervision. It would also benefit undergraduate seniors who are planning graduate work as well as most of the more senior among us." Evelyn J. Bowers-Bienkowski, American Journal of Human Biology
