Evolution's Bite:
A Story of Teeth, Diet, and Human Origins
Peter S. Ungar

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A compelling tale, Evolution’s Bite highlights the ways our teeth work and the clues they preserve about our evolutionary origin. Serving as an eloquent guide to fossil teeth, past environments, and archeological finds, Peter Ungar shows how the union of scientific fields shapes the profound story of food, diet, and evolution."--Rick Potts, director of the Human Origins Program, Smithsonian Institution

"This impressive book serves as a window into human history through the lens of teeth and diet. Ungar's seamless narrative brings bits of bone and teeth to life, and does so against a vivid backdrop in which paleoanthropologists arrive at their conclusions about why, how, and what we eat. This book is a pleasure to read--Ungar has that rare gift of engaging us through personal insight while simultaneously explaining complex scientific principles."—Joanna E. Lambert, University of Colorado, Boulder

"Evolution's Bite is not simply about teeth--it brings together evidence from geology, paleontology, biology, climatology, and even materials science in order to show how our dynamic relationship with the environment shaped who we are today. An enjoyable read."—Shara Bailey, New York University
