Hominid Skull Comparison: An Investigation of Hominid Evolution

This grant will fund the purchase of a full set of reproduction Hominid skulls to be used by students to investigate and evaluate possible evolutionary relationships between modern humans, apes and some extinct hominid forms. In a lab setting, students will use and read measuring instruments, identify cranial and dental features of various skulls and ultimately construct and justify a phylogenetic tree.
