The human population in the region continues to increase, resulting in urban growth and expansion of the regional highway network into former panther habitat Any action that decreases the wilderness qualities of the Everglades region impacts this species. The existing threats to the panther are interrelated and cannot be separated. Genetics. Genetic adaptations can occur when a stressor is constant and lasts for many generations (O’Neil ). The presence of the sickle cell allele in some human populations is one example. Keep in mind that genetic adaptations are environmentally other words, while a particular gene may be advantageous to have in one environment (AKA a genetic adaptation), it may be. Each chapter has a glossary but the book lacks an index. Even though many topics generally considered to be encompassed in Human Biology are included here, the treatment of them is generally unintegrated into the larger contexts of evolutionary biology, ecology, human life cycle adaptation, and normal physiological adaptations. DNA from a 37,year-old skeleton found at the Kostenki archaeological site in Russia supports recents findings and offers new ones about the history of human evolution.

Human history. Humans diverged from chimpanzees 6 to 7 million years ago in Africa (Glazko & Nei , Steiper & Young ), and notable adaptations in the past few million years include bipedalism, use of fire and tools, and an increase in brain lism was first observed in Australopithecus 4 million years ago, although the timing of this trait is a contentious topic (McHenry.   Jeffrey McKee's book, Sparing Nature: The Conflict between Human Population Growth and Earth's Biodiversity is just as applicable to the world's current environmental crisis as it was when it was first published in paperback in Through a captivating use of foreshadowing and direct and circumstantial scientific evidence, McKee weaves Reviews: 3. The word adaptation is reserved for inheritable genetic changes developed in a population over a long period of time. Researchers identified the origins of more than million single-nucleotide variants, that is, "locations where a single letter of the DNA sequence is different from other individuals" in the genomes of the studied sample. Many dire predictions have been made about the world’s population leading to a major crisis called the “population explosion.” In the book The Population Bomb, biologist Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich wrote, “The battle to feed all of humanity is the s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.
