An introduction to the multidisciplinary field of hominin
paleoecology for advanced undergraduate students and beginning
graduate students, Early Hominin Paleoecology offers an
up-to-date review of the relevant literature, exploring new
research and synthesizing old and new ideas.
Recent advances in the field and the laboratory are not only
improving our understanding of human evolution but are also
transforming it. Given the increasing specialization of the
individual fields of study in hominin paleontology, communicating
research results and data is difficult, especially to a broad
audience of graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and the
interested public. Early Hominin Paleoecology provides a
good working knowledge of the subject while also presenting a solid
grounding in the sundry ways this knowledge has been constructed.
The book is divided into three sections-climate and environment
(with a particular focus on the latter), adaptation and behavior,
and modern analogs and models-and features contributors from
various fields of study, including archaeology, primatology,
paleoclimatology, sedimentology, and geochemistry.
Early Hominin Paleoecology is an accessible introduction
into this fascinating and ever-evolving field and will be essential
to any student interested in pursuing research in human
