    • Abstract:
      Biological anthropology is the branch of anthropology that studies how the physical structure of the human body has changed over time. Biological anthropologists interpret these changes from a biological and an evolutionary standpoint, assigning classifications to different eras of human development based on when deviations occurred. Biological anthropology, sometimes referred to as physical anthropology, makes use of many other scientific disciplines to support its findings including human biology, paleontology, human genetics, and anatomy and physiology. This branch of anthropology can be further divided into serval subfields such as paleoanthropology, primatology, bioarchaeology, behavioral ecology, and forensic anthropology. Biological anthropologists seek to gain insight into the origin of the human race through understanding how, when, and why human biological and behavioral differences came to be. The discoveries made by biological anthropologists have become useful outside the anthropological realm, helping society understand the history of subjects such as language, culture, and climate change.
