Biological anthropology is a science that deals with the adaptations, variability, and evolution of human beings and their living and fossil relatives. Because it studies human biology in the context of human culture and behavior, biological anthropology is also a social science.
The AABA is the world's leading professional organization for biological anthropologists. Formed by 83 charter members in 1930, the AABA now has an international membership of over 2,200. The Association's annual meetings draw more than two thousand scientists and students from all over the world.
