Unformatted text preview: Physical Anthropology Annual Editions Exam #3 NAME: Emma Manu loan 1. According to Joe Alper, author of Rethinking Neanderthals, the assessment of a few lines of evidence, such as burial sites and rock shelters, paleoanthropologists generally agree that Neanderthals: a. b . lived in small group sizes of 10 to 15, including children. This may have lead to their demise. endured a lot of pain. They suffered many broken bones because they hunted large animals up close, stabbing prey with heavy spears. cared for individuals with disabling injuries or illness. all of the above suffered from a wide range of ailments, including pneumonia and malnourishment 2. Joe Alper, author of Rethinking Neanderthals, discusses many new approaches to studying Neanderthals way of life. One way researchers test their ideas about how Neanderthals made tools or how they created art is: a. b. extracting ancient mtDNA from Neanderthal bones implementing Carbon-14 dating techniques analyzing coprolites from both Neanderthal and animal remains. e. practicing paleo-mimicry: researchers themselves fashion tools and try to use them as Neanderthals might have all of the above 3. Ann Gibbons, author of A New View of the Birth of Homo sapiens, discusses "the species problem". What is the species problem? It refers to the idea that: a. If Neanderthals and Anatomically moderns interbred and produced viable offspring then the definition of the biological species concept would be violated. b. If Neanderthals and Anatomically moderns interbred and produced viable offspring then Neanderthals would not be part of our gene pool C . If Neanderthals and Anatomically moderns interbred then the African populations would have Neanderthal genes in their (African) gene pool d. Only a and c None of the above 4. Ann Gibbons, author of A New View of the Birth of Homo sapiens, discusses the scenarios of modern human origins. Which model supports the recent Neanderthal DNA studies? a. The Multi-Regional Model (b. Leaky Model c. The Replacement Model d. The Aquatic Model_e. The Machiavellian Model 5. According to Ann Gibbons, author of The Birth of Childhood, it pays to have babies early if parents face a high risk of death. Conversely, mammals that face a lower risk of dying benefit if they wait to reproduce. Why? Because older mothers can grow stronger, bigger bodies which produce bigger babies, who are more likely to survive.( a true b. false 6. According to Bearzi and Stanford, authors of A Bigger, Better Brain, humans, apes, and dolphins possess a high degree of intellect. Bottlenose dolphins, apes and humans have the presence of spindle-shaped neurons, called Von Economo neurons which have been linked with: a. large babies and low mortality rates b. long life-spans and high fecundity rates C. late maturation and short gestation periods early maturation and long gestation periods social fluency and the ability to sense what others think 7. According to Marks, author of Black White and Other?, classifying groups of people by race: a. is essential to the study of anthropology is necessary to support Darwin's theory of Natural Selection denies the African origin of modern humans supports the link between racial traits and social, cultural and political status only a & b 8. As described by Barry Bogin, author of The Tall and the Short of It, plasticity refers to the ability of an organism to: a. change its genetic destiny insulate itself from its environment manipulate its gene for growth adapt in response to changes in the environment only b & d V1...

    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.
