Surroundings and Evolution Shape Human Sight, Smell and Taste

Understanding how the five senses evolved can help inform how human sight, smell and taste continue to shift based on the environment, according to three researchers at the 2017 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston.

Hoover, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. .
