The Dictionary of Human Biology and Evolution (DHBE) is an invaluable research and study tool for both professionals and students covering a broad range of subjects within human biology, physical anthropology, anatomy, auxology, primatology, physiology, genetics, paleontology and zoology. Packed with 13000 descriptions of terms, specimens, sites and names, DHBE also includes information on over 1000 word roots, taxonomies and reference tables for extinct, recent and extant primates, geological and oxygen isotope chronologies, illustrations of landmarks, bones and muscles and an illustration of current hominid phylogeny, making this a must-have volume for anyone with an interest in human biology or evolution. DHBE is especially complete in its inventory of archaeological sites and the best-known hominid specimens excavated from them, but also includes up-to-date information on terms such as in silico, and those relating to the rapidly developing fields of human genomics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... invaluable reference tool for anyone with an interest in human biology or evolution ... for readers with little knowledge of these subjects it usefully defines core terms used in human ecology and evolution.' Reference Reviews
'The Cambridge Dictionary of Human Biology and Evolution is an excellent research and study tool both for professionals of different disciplines such as anatomy, primatology, human biology, physical anthropology, physiology, auxology, genetics, palentology and zoology for students. ... an existing space in the field of reference-books. ... the publication of a special reference work to human biology and evolution was a long time overdue. For primatologists, physical anthropologists and other scientists of the human sciences the book will become certain a 'must-have' volume.' HOMO - Journal of Comparative Human Biology
"This is a scholar,y work that is suitable for students and professionals. It covers a particular area that is not often covered, and contains some terms not found in medical or general biology dictionaries. Therefore, it fills a need. This work is strongly recommended for academic libraries." American Reference Books Annual
"...a very useful book for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals who need to fill in a term or two for a lecture on topics not completely within their grasp. There is so much includedin the book ... an immensely useful resource for instant illumination. The price of the paperback is entirely reasonable, given the huge number of topics covered. in short, this dictionary is highly recommended." American Journal of Human Biology
"The Cambridge Dictionary of Human Biology and Evolution is an excellent research and study tool both for professionals of different disciplines such as anatomy, primatology, human biology, physical anthropology, physiology, auxology, genetics, paleontology, and zoology, and for students... the book will [certainly become] a "must-have" volume." Kurt W. Alt, Journal of Comparative Human Biology
