Biological and physical anthropology are subfields of anthropology that focus on the biological and physical aspects of the human species.

Biological anthropology, also known as physical anthropology, is concerned with the study of the biological and evolutionary processes that have shaped the human species. This includes the study of human evolution, human anatomy, and human physiology, as well as the study of the biological and cultural variation among human populations.

Physical anthropology also examines the relationships between humans and other primates, and the evolutionary processes that have shaped both human and non-human primates. It uses methods from genetics, comparative anatomy, and archaeology to understand the biological, cultural, and environmental factors that have shaped the human species.

Physical anthropology has important implications for our understanding of human evolution, human biology, and the relationship between humans and other primates. It also has important applications in fields such as medicine, health, and forensic sciences.

Overall, biological and physical anthropology provide a comprehensive understanding of the biological and physical characteristics of the human species and its evolutionary history. They contribute to our understanding of what it means to be human, and how the human species has evolved and adapted to its environment over time.
