This book is a stellar resource, addressing what it means to be a female in evolution. The cross-cultural life-histories of women discussed in The Evolving Female are fascinating and invaluable. From it I have gained a more enlightened perspective of how and why the female body functions - for example: why female primates (including human females) tend to deposit extra fat and why females develop osteoporosis. This is a must read for all women and all students of evolution!

New Biological Books. Jeanne Altmann, "The Evolving Female: A Life-History Perspective.

By Mary Ellen Morbeck, Alison Galloway, Adrienne L. Much as evolution means change over time in a general sense to all scientists, so lifehistory is commonly understood as the history of changes through which an individual (or organism) passes. By Mary Ellen Morbeck, Alison Galloway, Adrienne L. But, in the same way that natural selection and sexual selection are theories about mechanisms of evolution specific to biology, so we have structured features of lifehistory theory in biology that are not present in the social sciences.

Evolving Female book. by Mary Ellen Morbeck. A human female is born, lives her life, and dies within the space of a few decades, but the shape of her life has been strongly influenced by 50 million years of primate evolution and more than 100 million years of mammalian evolution.

A Life-History Perspective. International Journal of Primatology 19, 199–201 (1998) doi:10. 1023/A:1020323414127.

A human female is born, lives her life, and dies within the space of a few decades, but the shape of her life has been strongly influenced by 50 million years of primate evolution and more than 100 million years of mammalian evolution. How the individual female plays out the stages of her life--from infancy, through the reproductive period, to old age--and how these stages have been formed by a long evolutionary process, is the theme of this collection. Written by leading scholars in fields ranging from evolutionary biology to cultural anthropology, these essays together examine what it means to be female, integrating the life histories of marine mammals, monkeys, apes, and humans. The result is a fascinating inquiry into the similarities among the ways females of different species balance the need for survival with their role in reproduction and mothering.

The Evolving Female offers an outlook integrating life history with an intimate examination of female life paths. Behavior, anatomy and physiology, growth and development, cultural identity of women, the individual, and the society are among the topics investigated. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Linda Fedigan, Kathryn Ono, Joanne Reiter, Barbara Smuts, Mariko Hiraiwa-Hasegawa, Mary McDonald Pavelka, Caroline Pond, Robin McFarland, Silvana Borgognini Tarli and Elena Repetto, Gilda Morelli, Patricia Draper, Catherine Panter-Brick, Virginia J. Vitzthum, Alison Jolly, and Beverly McLeod.
