THE UNDERGRADUATE JOURNAL
OF BIOLOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGY
Sapient was founded in 2012 by undergraduates of the Evolutionary Biology of the Human Species (EBHS) program within the Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology (E3B) department at Columbia University. We are a student-run annual publication focusing on undergraduate research in biological anthropology.
Our goal is to provide undergraduates from universities worldwide the opportunity to have their scientific writing peer-reviewed and formally published.
1. Wise, possessing or expressing great sagacity
2. Relating to the human species ( Homo sapiens )
OUR RESEARCH TOPICS
WHAT IS BIOLOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGY?
Also known as physical anthropology, the study of biological anthropology centers around the biological aspects (e.g. adaptation, variation, behavioral ecology, evolution) of humans and their living and fossil relatives, including non-human primates. Critically, it does so within the framework of evolutionary theory and with attention to biocultural development: that is the interplay of biology and culture.
