Assessments of whether closely related species should be classified into more than one genus have been a longstanding source of controversy in primatology. For example, researchers hold differing opinions about whether cebine species should be classified into one or two genera. In this study, we investigated whether craniofacial shape is a reliable...

Sexual dimorphism has been widely documented in primates, however craniodental sexual dimorphism among hylobatids has not been well researched. In this study, I investigate interspecific differences in the presence and pattern of craniodental sexual dimorphism among gibbons and siamang using data taken from eight species representing all four hylob...
Article
Researchers using digital methods often collect data from 3D models at different resolutions, obtained using different scanning techniques. Although previous research has sought to understand whether scanning method and model resolution affect data accuracy, no study has systematically evaluated the sources of error associated with scanning method,...

Objectives: The aim of this study is to understand whether the shape of three sub-regions of the mandibular corpus (the alveolar arch, corpus at M1 and posterior symphysis) are useful for making taxonomic assessments at the genus and species levels in extant hominids. Materials and methods: We use data taken from 3D surface scans of the mandibul...
Article
The frequency of sagittal crest expression and patterns of sagittal crest growth and development have been documented in hominoids, including some extinct hominin taxa, and the more frequent expression of the sagittal crest in males has been traditionally linked with the need for larger-bodied individuals to have enough attachment area for the temp...
Article
The degree of spheno-occipital fusion has been used to assign a relative age to dentally mature hominoid cranial specimens. However, a recent study of captive individuals (Poe: Am J Phys Anthropol 144 (2011) 162–165) concluded that fusion of the spheno-occipital suture in great ape taxa is of little utility for aging dentally mature individuals. In...

Hyoid position in Neanderthals has previously been reconstructed using mandibular and basicranial dimensions to quantify Neanderthal vocal tract anatomy (Barney et al., 2012; Boe et al., 2002; Falk, 1975; Houghton, 1993; Lieberman et al., 1971). However, suprahyoid muscle attachments on the mandible and basicranium have received less attention. To...

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...
