Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa aboutyears ago.

We are now the only living members of what many zoologists refer to as the human tribe, Hominini, but there is.

Life history evolution in primates. of chapters on the behavior of humans at the end of each major section represents one particularly novel aspect of the book, and it will remind readers what. Attempting to reconstruct the life of early societies, particular emphasis is laid upon social behaviour among primates, as well as approaches from ethnology, prehistoric archaeology, geography, genetics, human stress biology and psychology.

G., Maynard-Smith, J. & Dunbar, R. Proceedings of the British Acad 77 –   Humans are part of the biological group known as sure are an unusual species of primate, though!.

Primates include lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, and apes – a group of species that is well known for being social, smart, and very adept at using their hands. We review evolutionary processes and mechanisms that gave rise to the diversity of primate social systems.

We define social organization, social structure and mating system as distinct components of a social system. For each component, we summarize levels and patterns of variation among primates and discuss evolutionary determinants of this by: In this book, biologist Donald Broom argues that these aspects of human culture have evolved as a consequence of natural selection; that morally acceptable behaviour benefits the humans and other animals and that a principal function of religion is to underpin and encourage such : Donald M.

Broom. (a) Mammalian social behaviour. Mammals are an excellent taxon in which to investigate constraints and flexibility in social behaviour because they show an extremely broad range of social systems, along with equivalent variation in social complexity, behavioural flexibility, brain size and cognitive abilities [16–19].Compared with other taxa whose social behaviour has been well studied Cited by: Social groups are not all alike, and many efforts have been made to classify them, especially among the,)cial insects (e.g., ) and among primates (40, 52, ).

For purposes of discussing the evolution of social organization it seems most useful to begin with five general kinds of groups: I. groups of unrelated individuals,File Size: 1MB.

Description. Evolution of Human Behavior is the first text to synthesize and compare the major proposals for human behavioral evolution from an anthropological perspective. Ideal for courses in the evolution of human behavior, human evolutionary ecology, evolutionary psychology, and biological anthropology, this unique volume reviews a wide array of approaches--including human behavioral.

Human evolution is the evolutionary process that led to the emergence of anatomically modern humans, beginning with the evolutionary history of primates – in particular genus Homo – and leading to the emergence of Homo sapiens as a distinct species of the hominid family, the great process involved the gradual development of traits such as human bipedalism and language.

Dominance Hierarchies, Grooming, Mother-Child Bonds, and other Nonhuman Primate Behavior. Social Behaviour In Primates book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. In turn, the book focuses on primate groiups, the social structure of primate groups, infant development, sexual behavior, dominance and subordinate behavior, 3/5.

Evolutionary psychology is a theoretical approach in the social and natural sciences that examines psychological structure from a modern evolutionary perspective. It seeks to identify which human psychological traits are evolved adaptations – that is, the functional products of natural selection or sexual selection in human evolution.

Adaptationist thinking about physiological mechanisms. Social structures are the results of natural selection in specific habitats and they influence individual interactions and social relationships. Social structure varies, depends on different environmental factors.

Thus, in most primate species, social structure is flexible, not fixed. This book represents an important meeting ground in the primatology field by exploring the various primate models that have been used in the reconstruction of early human behavior.

While some models are based on the proposition that a key behavioral feature such as hunting, eating of seeds or monogamous mating led to the evolutionary separation of apes and humans, other models suggest.

One has focused on phylogenetic analyses that treat social traits as static, species-specific characteristics; the other has focused on understanding the behavioral flexibility of particular populations or species in response to local ecological or demographic variables.J.
