Biological Anthropology includes the study of human evolution and human biological variation. The course at Otago covers evolutionary and comparative anatomy of the human body (what makes it unique among primates), and why it varies among populations.
There is an emphasis on variation as illustrated by the human skeleton and the application of the principles of human variation to the analysis of human skeletal remains excavated from archaelogical sites and in forensic cases.
