This book examines the evidence of primate and human evolution in the light of new evolutionary models and advances in taxonomic theory. Dr. Groves discusses the 'Nomogenesis' of Lev Berg and criticizes the cladistic school of taxonomy, adapting it in the light of theories of speciation. The result is a theory in which internal processes play a major role in human evolution and taxonomy becomes of major importance in evolutionary interpretation. The book will interest students and teachers of human biology and evolution, physical anthropologists, zoologists, paleontologists, and primatologists.
