    Hull York Medical School, The University of York, UK
    J Anat 210:41-53. 2007
    ..This has implications when investigating craniofacial growth and masticatory function but should generally be taken into account in functional analyses of the craniofacial system of both extant and extinct species...

    K Kupczik
    Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Am J Phys Anthropol 139:193-203. 2009
    ..Thus, if the supraorbital torus arises to resist masticatory loads, it is either already adapted in each of our subadult models so that we do not observe high SED or a lower site-specific bone deposition threshold must apply...

    Kornelius Kupczik
    Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Front Oral Biol 13:16-22. 2009
    ..Since it is possible that, at least in some species, crown and root size vary independently, future studies should elucidate the relationship between tooth root size and mandible form...

    Kornelius Kupczik

    J Hum Evol 59:525-41. 2010
    ..sapiens root surface areas peak at M(2). Since root surface area is linked to masticatory function, this suggests a distinct occlusal loading regime in Neanderthals compared with both recent and Pleistocene H. sapiens...

    Matthew M Skinner
    Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, 04103, Germany
    Am J Phys Anthropol 142:157-63. 2010
    ..We identify three patterns of EDJ/OES complexity which demonstrate that both crown patterning early in development and the subsequent deposition of the enamel cap contribute to overall crown complexity in primates...

    Institute of Human Biology, University of Hamburg, Allende Platz2, 20146 Hamburg, Germany

    Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol 276:113-33. 2004
    ..This study also addresses the problems of variation and phylogenetic significance of many of the features, and highlights the need for basic studies on the variability and relevance of such endocranial traits in human evolution...
