Evolutionary Anthropology

The research activities of the group are carried out in the field of Evolutionary Anthropology, which studies the biological variability of past and modern humans from an evolutionary perspective. The central questions are the origin, the evolution, the phylogeny, as well as the phenotypic and molecular variability of humans with their distinctive attributes (bipedalism, cognitive abilities and language, culture and technology). Genes, genomes and human skeletal remains represent valuable traces of the history of human evolution and their study contributes to reconstruct the biology and evolution of the interaction between humans and the environment (physical and socio-cultural) over time.
