(PhD, UC Berkeley 1965) Professor of Anthropology, of Evolutionary Biology, of the Biological and Social Sciences in the College, and in the Morris Fishbein Center for the History of Science and Medicine, conducts field and experimental laboratory studies pertaining to the evolution of human and nonhuman primate morphology, locomotion, and other behavior. He is also engaged in paleoanthropology, particularly the evolution of bipedalism and of the human hand, and the history of theories of hominoid evolution and of social prejudice in physical anthropology. Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Primatology (1988-2010), and Series Editor, Developments in Primatology: Progresss and Prospects.
