American Association Of Physical Anthropologists

Society founded in 1931 at the annual meetings of the American Anatomical Association. The AAPA is devoted to the study of human biology, including human evolution and human biological variation. The AAPA was heavily anatomical in its original orientation; its current members conduct research in physiology, genetics, adaptation, growth and development, and primate morphology and behavior, as well as other areas of interest to human evolutionary biologists. This is the largest society of human evolutionary biologists in North America, with approximately 1500 members. The official journal of the AAPA is the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
