Human Anatomy and Physiology from an Evolutionary Perspective

Arndt von Hippel

Human Evolutionary Biology
Comments by reviewers of this text: “The author displays an excellent talent for describing biologic processes in easy to comprehend and interesting lay terms” “…The level and quality of the physiology presentation is much better than (in) any straight physiology text we examined.”“…an admirably…functional approach which I heartily applaud.” “charming and informative…” “Reducing the human species to just one type of evolutionary form is folly(!)” “All necessary topics are covered… I believe the approach is appropriate, even refreshing to someone like myself. It is droll and sardonic… very readable… the level of detail…may be the strongest aspect of this presentation. I enjoyedreading the text, particularly its irreverent analogies… The continual discussion of the selective pressure and its consequences on the genome and reproductive success is the most successful part of the presentation. Yes, by all means… a valuable addition to a modern human biology course.” “He is quite a good writer and I enjoyed a chuckle or two as I read the manuscript. I got the sense of a“Fantastic Voyage” approach… a very nice job of tying in the evolutionary connections… the integration of familiar examples…gives one a sense that this material has some relevance to the real world.”
