Albionism
Albionism Physical anthropologists view humans as biological organisms. Coupled with genetics and biochemistry, scientists can form a more complete picture of human anatomy, both past and present. Physical anthropology looks at human variation and evolution. Variation looks at the biological differences that exist between individuals within a population and at individuals between populations (e.g., body shape, size, and physiological responses). These differences in human biology are measured us

In the Shadow of Man
In the Shadow of Man In this paper I am going to discuss how anthropology is a science. I am also going to explain how Jane Goodall is a scientist with her works with chimpanzees, and how that is known as primatology. I will also look at the order primates in correspondence with Jane Goodall’s book on primates, specifically the chimpanzee. Anthropology is a science; it has four aspects in which you can study. Anthropology takes a look at humankind and with its subdiciplines you can break down in
Molecular Nanotechnology
Molecular Nanotechnology
Molecular Nanotechnology The author's interest in nanotechnology stems from the sheer gravity of the claims made by those researching and developing this technology; in essence that the capacity to manipulate and program matter with atomic precision will witness a sweeping technological revolution, that could make the industrial revolution seem almost inconsequential in comparison. Molecular nanotechnology could potentially deliver tremendous advances in miniaturization, materials, and manufactu
Jane Goodall
Jane Goodall
Jane Goodall Ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall, one of the most renowned and respected scientists in the world. She is the author of six major books, numerous articles and the recipient of many prestigious awards. Her profound scientific discoveries have revolutionized the field of primatology. For example, she observed how chimpanzees made and used their own tools - a behaviour previously believed to separate man from all other animals. Jane Goodall is the world's foremost authority on chimpanzees. I

Chimpanzee
Chimpanzee
Chimpanzee The acts of cannibalism and infanticide are very apparent in the behavior of the chimpanzee. Many African studies show that wild chimpanzees kill and eat infants of their own species (Goodall, 1986:151). Although there is not a clear answer why chimps engage in this very violent and sometimes gruesome behavior there are many ideas and suggestions. This essay will deal with chimpanzee aggression, cannibalism and infanticide. This paper will present information on major research studies

Threat of Endangerment: The Mountain Gorilla
Threat of Endangerment: The Mountain Gorilla The mountain gorilla was first discovered roaming the Virunga Volcanoes in Rwanda (von Beringe, 2002, p.9). German Captain Robert von Beringe and his African soldiers stumbled upon two mountain gorillas around the volcanic region on October 17, 1902 (von Beringe, 2002, p.9). Von Beringe captured and killed one of them and sent the body to the Zoological Museum in Berlin, Germany. Professor Paul Matschie, who worked with the museum, identified the gori

To discover the reasons for how we act the way we do and what this knowledge can do to impact the way we live our lives in this complex society that we have created. One of the ways that science has begun to shed light on the inner workings of the human condition is through Primatology. Built from the words Primate which refers to a group
Capuchin BiPedalism
Capuchin BiPedalism
Capuchin BiPedalism This experiment tested how posture affects the hand preference in tufted capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella). The research indicated that in fact there may exist a preference for use of the right-hand when in an upright posture standing bipedally. This preference, according to the study is exhibited in the capuchins when reaching bipedally. However the monkeys did not necessarily exhibit a preference when using tools to probe for a treat. In addition the results showed that there
