Biological anthropology is the study of human evolution.  Research in this discipline can focus on fossils as well as living people and nonhuman primates with the shared goal of understanding "fitness" or the biological mechanisms of survival and reproduction.

 
Here at WSU research on fossils, people, and primates revolves around environmental interactions, specifically as they relate to food acquisition and attainment of nutritional needs.
