Ancestral Roots

Author(s): Timothy Clack

Science

Many of the areas covered in the book are hot topics, such as environmental destruction and obesity. The author has written articles for many popular science magazines. We are approaching the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, and 150 years since the "On the Origin of Species" was published, so books covering evolution, human evolution etc are going to be in the media.Human evolution explains how we have found ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Issues of modern living; depression, obesity, and environmental destruction, can be understood in relation to our evolutionary past. An awareness of this past and its relation to the present can help limit their impact on the future.
