Bones, Stones and Molecules by David W. Cameron
Book Description"Bones, Stones and Molecules" provides some of the best evidence for resolving the debate between the two hypotheses of human origins. The debate between the 'Out of Africa' model and the 'Multiregional' hypothesis is examined through the functional and developmental processes associated with the evolution of the human skull and face and focuses on the significance of the Australian record. The book analyzes important new discoveries that have occurred recently and examines evidence that is not available elsewhere. Cameron and Groves argue that the existing evidence supports a recent origin for modern humans from Africa. They also specifically relate these two theories to interpretations of the origins of the first Australians. The book provides an up-to-date interpretation of the fossil, archaeological and the molecular evidence, specifically as it relates to Asia, and Australia in particular. It is readily accessible to the layperson and professional. It provides concise coverage of current scientific evidence, and presents a robust computer-generated model of human speciation over the last 7 million years. It is well illustrated with figures and photographs of important fossil specimens; and presents a synthesis of great ape and human evolution.
