Ecology, Evolution, and Environment

This focus area examines the adaptation of human and non-human primates with their ecosystems. As evolutionary anthropologists, we study these interactions through research on behavior and cognition, diet, foraging strategies, life history patterns, and morphological variation of past and present populations.
