    Evolution 59:2691-704. 2005
    ..This result supports the hypothesis that limb divergence, particularly selection for increased functional specialization, involves the reduction of developmental factors common to both limbs, thereby reducing covariation...

    Harvard University, Department of Anthropology, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Hum Evol 45:441-64. 2003
    ..This suggests that Hylobates' specializations may skew analyses of hominoid postcranial uniqueness and variability, and that great apes are relatively similar in their postcranium...
