growth by virtue of an increase in inter-cellular materials.
cultural change that occurs in response to extended firsthand contacts between two or more previously autonomous groups.
acephalous society:
a society without a political head such as a president, chief, or king.
achieved status:
social standing and prestige reflecting the ability of an individual to acquire anestablished position in society as a result of individual accomplishments (cf. ascribed status).

the evolution of a single evolutionary stock into a number of different species.

age set:
a group of people roughly the same age who pass through various age grades together.
a clumping together of red blood cells in the presence of an antibody.
the uninterrupted process of normal development that leads to a progressive decline inphysiological function and ultimately to death.
agonistic behavior:
behavior that involves fighting, threats, and fleeing.
a recessive abnormality that leads to little or no production of the skin pigment melanin.
an optical surveying instrument used in conjunction with a plane-table and stadia-rod to producedetailed large-scale topographic maps.
the fragmentation of individuals' relations to their work, the things they produce, and theresources with which they produce them.
all-male party:
among chimpanzees, a small group of adult or adolescent males.
a sack within the amniote egg in which waste products produced by the embryo are deposited.

a rule which states that among endotherms, populations of the same species living near theequator tend to have more protruding body parts and longer limbs than do populations farther away fromthe equator.
grooming another animal.
allometric growth:
the pattern of growth whereby different parts of the body grow at different rates withrespect to each other.
forms contained in morphemes that differ in sound but not in meaning.

amino acid:
a type of molecule that forms the basic building block of proteins.
amino-acid racemization:
