ABOUT SAPIENT

apient 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.

Our goal is to provide undergraduates from universities worldwide the opportunity to have their scientific writing peer-reviewed and formally published.

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.
