Articulation of the forelimb located below the elbow between the forearm and the cannon; it contributes to movement and acts as a shock absorber. elbow Articulation of the forelimb between the upper arm and the forearm above the knee. Apes and Human Evolution Book Description: In this masterwork, Russell H. Tuttle synthesizes a vast research literature in primate evolution and behavior to explain how apes and humans evolved in relation to one another, and why humans became a bipedal, tool-making, culture-inventing species distinct from other hominoids. Angel Zeininger Lecturning Fellow, Senior of Evolutionary Anthropology My primary areas of interest are the ontogeny of locomotion, trabecular bone remodeling, and the evolution and functional morphology of the hands and feet. primate evolutionary morphology, mammalian evolution-ary morphology, and theory and practice of phylogeny re-construction and adaptive scenarios. A seven page bibliog-raphy of his publications spanning from his first in to one article in press at the time of the book’s printing, bears further testament to the breadth and depth of his knowl-.

This volume examines these and other hominoid fossils found in Eurasia and discusses what we can learn using biostratigraphic and ecological frameworks. What is the place of Europe in the origin of humankind. While our earliest human ancestors may have come out of Africa, many of our more recent ancestors and those of other primates left their fossil remains in Europe and the Near East.

The inspiration for this volume of contributed papers stemmed from conversations between the editors in front of Chuck Hilton's poster on the determinants of hominid walking speed, presented at thel meetings of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (AAPA).

external morphology (or eidonomy), as well as the form and structure of the internal parts like bones and organs, i.e. internal morphology (or anatomy). With regard to its dp3 morphology, the Aramis hominoid closely resembles homo- logues of Kenyapithecus, Dryopithecus, and Pan in its small metaconid and minimal development of the talonid.

In contrast, incontestable hominids in- cluding Australopithecus, Paranthropus and Horno exhibit varying degrees of dp3 molarization. statements that some non-hominoid primates have a separate flexor pollicis longus (e.g., Marzke, ; Shrewsbury et al., ) refer to older publications that often used the name ‘flexor pollicis longus’ for the tendon of the flexor digitorum profundus that inserts onto digit 1 and not for a separate flexor pollicis longus that.
