Evolutionary history of the "robust" australopithecines. (reprint, 1988)
Ed. by Frederick E. Grine.
Aldine De Gruyter
This title was originally published in 1988 (New York: A. de Gruyter) as a part of the series Foundations of Human Behavior. Editor Grine (anthropology, State U. of New York, Stony Brook) discusses what has been learned about the evolutionary history of the "robust" australopithecines in the previous 50 years. International contributors provide thematic essays in five topics: studies of the craniodental evidence, studies of the postcranial evidence, studies of variation and taxonomy, studies of evolutionary relationships, and studies of paleogeography, paleoecology, and natural history. The book is occasionally illustrated with black-and-white photographs and drawings; both a specimen and subject index are included.
