Kat Papalas Professor Furgione Biodiversity and Evolution 11 April 2016 Lab #10: Human Evolution Our objectives in this lab will be to have a better understanding of our place in the natural world, to gain insight into the comparative anatomy of humans and apes, and finally, interpret the anatomy of early human fossil remains. The lab is split up into to six sections; the skull, sexual dimorphism, the os coxae, the femur, the foot, and the hand. Each section is consisted of three parts labeled A, B, and C with multiple sections to each part. In section IA The Skull we will be comparing the skulls of chimpanzees to those of modern humans. In IB The Skull we are to examine the skull of Australopithecus and compare it to modern human skulls and great apes. In the final section of The Skull , we will be reading and answering questions about The Taung Baby, a facial skeleton and an endocast of a child that lived 2 million years ago.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
