    schema:description ""The long-term plan for the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution (W-BEHE) is that it will be an authoritative and accessible source of information about the hominin clade of the tree of life. Entries cover: - general evolutionary principles, - information about the molecular and developmental biological approaches used to help understand the pattern and process of evolution, - methods used to investigate relationships among the living great apes and modern humans, - methods germane to understanding the origins and evolutionary history of the hominin clade and its climatic and ecological context, - what makes the behavior of modern humans distinctive and the evolutionary history of that distinctiveness, - information about the modern methods used to capture and interpret data from the hominin fossil and archeological records, as well as comparative biology, - nonhominin fossil evidence germane to the evolution of the hominin clade, - specialist terms used to describe the hominin fossil and archeological records, - hypotheses germane to interpreting human evolutionary history, - biographies of individuals who have made significant contributions to the accumulation of the fossil and archeological, and other, evidence and to its interpretation, - institutions and organizations that have contributed to our understanding of human evolutionary history, - information about hominin fossil and comparative great ape collections and about some of the repositories that hold hominin fossil collections"--"@en ;
