  This book, written by Sheila Newman, is a fascinating and absorbing book which presents many new fundamental ideas that explores the dynamic relationship between human populations and their environment through kinship structures. NSCA's Essentials of Training Special Populations is an ideal preparatory guide for those seeking CSPS certification. The book is also a practical reference for exercise professionals who work with clients with various conditions and disorders.

Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline () by Darrel Bricker and John Ibbitson is a fascinating book that makes the case the global population is likely to peak sooner than UN population predictions suggest and looks at why populations are declining and the what the impact of declining populations is likely to be.4/5().

Prior to the publication of this book, no comprehensive treatment of the genetics of human populations emphasized the interpretation of data in relation to the theoretical models. Human Populations book book fills the need for such a treatment.

Beginning with the basic concepts of genetics, the authors — both world famous geneticists — advance to discussions Cited by:   South Asia is home to a diverse range of prehistoric and contemporary cultures that include foragers, pastoralists, and farmers.

In this book, archaeologists, biological anthropologists, geneticists and linguists are brought together in order to provide a comprehensive account of the history and evolution of human populations residing in the subcontinent. The romantic landscapes and exotic cultures of Arabia have long captured the int- ests of both academics and the general public alike.

The wide array and incredible variety of environments found across the Arabian peninsula are truly dramatic; tro- cal coastal plains are found bordering up against barren sandy deserts, high mountain plateaus are deeply incised by ancient river courses.

The Columbian exchange, also known as the Columbian interchange, named after Christopher Columbus, was the widespread transfer of plants, animals, culture, human populations, technology, diseases, and ideas between the Americas, West Africa, and the Old World in the 15th and 16th centuries.

It also relates to European colonization and trade following Christopher Columbus's. Because most emerging viral diseases in Human Populations book in the 21st century have been zoonotic, Emerging Viruses in Human Populations focuses on this group of viruses.

The resulting overview is a book useful for anyone interested in a diverse group of viral agents that have recently elicited novel disease syndromes in human populations around the : Aaron C.

Ergonomics can be applied on a micro- as well as a macro-scale. Ergonomics needs to be applied in both new designs and as an intervention in existing designs, and its efficacy can be judged. Finally, ergonomics allows us to ever strive to improve human and system performance, health, safety, comfort, and the quality of life.

In this book, paleoenvironmental specialists, archaeologists and geneticists are brought together to provide a comprehensive account of the evolution of human populations in Arabia.

A wide range of topics are explored in this book, including environmental change and its impact on human populations, the movement and dispersal of populations.

Studying the Human Population. We know more about the human population and how it has grown than we know about the population of any other species thanks to demography, which is the scientific study of human populations.

Demography encompasses the size. In demographics, the world population is the total number of humans currently living, and was estimated to have reached billion people as of March It took overyears of human history for the world's population to reach 1 billion, and only years more to reach 7 billion.

The world population has experienced continuous growth following the Great Famine of – and. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: ix, pages: illustrations.

Genetic diversity has underpinned the survival and expansion of human populations against a long history of varied microbial challenges, but may limit the universal immunogenicity of current vaccines against particular pathogens.

This book provides that resource and complements traditional vaccinology books, but also serves as an excellent.

Emphasis on interpretation of data in relation to theoretical models. High-throughput genotyping data are useful for making inferences about human evolutionary history. However, the populations sampled to date are unevenly distributed, and some areas (e.g., South and Central Asia) have rarely been sampled in large-scale assess human genetic variation more evenly, we sampled individuals from 13 worldwide populations that are not covered by previous Cited by: Demography at the Edge: Remote Human Populations in Developed Nations Assoc Prof Rasmus Ole Rasmussen, Mr Andrew Taylor, Professor Dean Carson, Professor Lee Huskey, Professor Prescott C.

Ensign Limited preview - Central to the study of human variation is the concept of a biological population, as defined in Chapter 5 (p. ), and as explained again later. Both physical features and genotypes vary from one person to another within populations, but there is also a good deal of variation between human populations from different geographic areas as the File Size: 1MB.
