Craniodental Variation Among the Great Apes. by Akiko Uchida. Peabody Museum Bulletins 4. Akiko Uchida’s detailed data descriptions and comprehensive analysis of living ape specimens from true biological populations make a significant contribution to understanding the systematics of living hominoids and interpreting the hominoid fossil record. Craniodental Variation in Paranthropus boisei: nomic significance of variation among hominin fos-sils. ern humans, and the other African great apes, are traditionally the preferred analogues for investiga-tions of intraspecific variation within fossil homi-nins. However, the .

Craniodental variation among Macaques (Macaca), nonhuman primates. An assessment using extant great apes and Old World monkeys. In: de Bonis L, Koufous GD, Andrews P, editor. In Hominoid Evolution and Climate Change in Europe Volume 2: Phylogeny of .   The patterning of intraspecific variation among the great apes is proving more complex than has been recognized previously. The great ape species, as currently defined, may include markedly different subspecies, alternatively, the majority of intraspeclflc variation may be observed at the populational level within a single subspecies.   In terms of structure and function, the skull is one of the most complicated organs in the body. It is also one of the most important parts in terms of developmental and evolutionary origins. This complexity makes it difficult to obtain evolutionary assessments if, as is usually the case with fossils, only part of the skull is available. For this reason this study involves a set of comparisons.   Phylogenetic relationships and variation of genetic diversity among the great apes. The height of the bars represents genome-wide diversity. Source: Data from Locke et al. (), Prado-Martinez et al. (), and Xue et al. () were re-analysed based on sequence read mapping to their respective species reference genomes.

Also, it is likely that living great apes and even the larger Old World monkeys do not document the upper limits of dimorphism that may be encountered in single species fossil samples (Kelley. A contrast between size-preserved and size-adjusted analyses reveal that size, sexual dimorphism and shape are significant factors in the patterning of molar variation in great apes. The results of this study have several implications for hominin taxonomy, including identifying subspecies among hominins. These implications are discussed. This is the first book to deal exclusively with variations in construction contracts and provide the detailed and comprehensive coverage that it demands. Construction Contract Variations analyses the issues that arise in determining whether certain work is a variation, the contractor’s obligation to undertake such work as well as its right to be paid.   The great apes and gibbons are characterized by extensive variation in degree of body size and cranial dimorphism, but although some studies have investigated how sexual dimorphism in body mass is attained in these species, for the majority of taxa concerned, no corresponding work has explored the full extent of how sexual dimorphism is attained in the facial skeleton. In addition, most.
