    Spine J 14:87-97. 2014
    ..The optimal lordotic range remains unknown and may be related to a variety of individual factors such as weight, activity, muscular strength, and flexibility of the spine and lower extremities. ..

    Ella Been
    Department of Anatomy and Anthropology, Tel Aviv University, Israel
    Am J Phys Anthropol 147:64-77. 2012
    ..Neandertals have smaller lordotic angles (LA = 29° ± 4) than modern humans, but higher angles than nonhuman apes (22° ± 3). This suggests possible subtle differences in Neandertal posture and locomotion from that of modern humans...

    Department of Anatomy and Anthropology, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, 69978, Israel
    Clin Orthop Relat Res 468:1822-9. 2010
    ..We assume the lumbar spine of the pronograde ancestors of modern humans was like those of extant nonhuman primates, but which spinal components changed in the transition from small lordosis angles to large ones is not fully understood...
