- Walking, running and the evolution of short toes in humansCampbell Rolian
Department of Anthropology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
J Exp Biol 212:713-21. 2009..The increased mechanical cost associated with long toes in running suggests that modern human forefoot proportions might have been selected for in the context of the evolution of endurance running...

Department of Comparative Biology and Experimental Medicine, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2N4N1
Am J Phys Anthropol 152:393-406. 2013..Functionally, these results suggest Au. afarensis could not produce precision grips with the same efficiency as modern humans, which may in part account for the absence of lithic technology in this fossil taxon...
