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
