      Nina Jablonski, who wrote the book called “Skin: A Natural History”, talks about how our skin color is our body’s way of adapting to the kind of climate we are explosed to. The climate varies in levels of UV exposure, for one thing, and her viewpoint is a unique take on the history of mankind.

      In this talk, she also says that Charles Darwin have disagreed with her theory, and Nina Jablonski defends, it’s because he doesn’t have any access to the facilities of NASA to clearly see what she meant.

      The author and the speaker currently teaches at Penn State’s Anthology Department tackling the subjects Primatology, Skin and Bio Cultural Evolution.

      Some of her work includes the following:

      • Primate evolution, ¬†or the study of Old World primate lineages, especially tarsiers, monkeys, apes, and humans.
      • Evolution of human skin and skin coloration, where she draws up data on human anatomy, physiological make-up, paleontological and epidemiological history.
      • Evolution of hominid bipedalism, where she studies the relation of human behavior with bipedal posture and locomotion.
      • Mammalian paleoecology, where she examines the history of mammalian herbivores and its evolution.

      This video is of her appearance on TED Talks.
