Comparing the habits of apes, monkeys, scavengers, predators, and the fossil record, this course addresses the evolution of the modern human body. Shifts in social and environmental conditions, past, present, and future, as well as the impact of innovations in methods of preparation over time and in radically diverse communities are analyzed.

NOTE: For the above lab section, we do not meet on a weekly basis. Instead, several field study trips are required. This course is ideal for students who love nature and are willing to work outdoors even if the weather becomes challenging. The field study includes a two-day tent-camping trip (scheduled for April 29-30, 2017) and a 1-day trip (scheduled for March 18, 2017). There will also be four Friday on-campus lab days from about 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, (scheduled for February 3, 2017, February 24, 2017, and March 3, 2017 and March 24, 2017). The required cost for the field trips, $6, must be paid to the Business Services office during the second week of the semester. This will be used to pay campground rental and entrance fees associated with the trips above. The class is scheduled to go to the California Academy of Sciences on March 18. Students will be required to purchase their own ticket (~$29). Contact Diane Carney at carneyd@arc.losrios.edu if you require more information about the field study trips.
Students who qualify due to a lack of sufficient funds may request the field trip fee be waived.
