Man as a Species.
Solem, Alan; And Others
Written in 1964, the document represents experimental material of the Anthropology Curriculum Study Project. The objectives of the project were to discuss the evolution of man as distinguished from the evolution of other species and as related to culture, and to emphasize human diversity. Three brief essays are presented. The first, "The Species Concept," explains factors used to determine the classification of animals into species. The second essay, "Man As A Species," defines species as sexually producing organisms that actually or potentially interbreed and produce fertile offspring. The geographical factors of human variation are discussed. The third essay, "The Species, Man," summarizes the characteristics of man by describing anatomical function and comparing man's body with other living creatures. (KC)
