    with paleoanthropology of particular interest.

    The evidence for human evolution is found in many fields of natural science. Much of this evidence is in the fossil record, although geneticsis now playing an ever-increasing and complementary role. The studies of ontogeny, phylogeny and especially evolutionary developmental biology of both vertebrates and invertebrates offer considerable insight into the evolution of all life, including how humans evolved. The specific study of the origin and life of humans is anthropology, with paleoanthropology of particular interest.



    What does the sentence marked in blue mean in that context?

    It would seem to mean (in this context) that anthropology is one field of natural science which supports the theory of evolution, with paleoanthropology being particularly relevant to the issue of evolution.

    Does it mean, in a way, that paleoanthropology has more relavance to the subject thenanthropology?

    No, paleoanthropology is a branch of anthropology. It means that paleoanthropology specifically has more relevance than anthropology in general.
