    Naturwissenschaften 94:107-12. 2007
    ..The new discovery from Pirro Nord changes the chronology of the first arrival of hominids in Europe and offers new perspectives in the debate about the human dispersal in the Early Pleistocene...

    David Lordkipanidze
    Georgian National Museum, 0105 Tbilisi, Georgia
    Nature 449:305-10. 2007
    ..Thus, the earliest known hominins to have lived outside of Africa in the temperate zones of Eurasia did not yet display the full set of derived skeletal features...

    J Hum Evol 36:535-47. 1999
    ..Unfortunately the latter specimens are lost, and from the literature it is impossible to furnish an accurate specific attribution. The taxonomic allocation of latest Miocene Mesopithecus species is briefly discussed...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:8795-9. 1999
    ..Digital image processing of calibrated hip bone radiographs reveals the occurrence of trabecular features, which, in humans and fossil hominids, are related to vertical support of the body weight, i.e., to bipedality...

    J Hum Evol 40:187-202. 2001
    ..Although Pliocene localities in western Europe have yielded so far only scanty Macaca finds, our data (even if preliminary) refute a major overall size difference between the extant Barbary macaque and the related fossil remains...

    J Hum Evol 64:83-92. 2013

    E Abbate
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra, Universita di Firenze, Italy
    Nature 393:458-60. 1998
    ..The layer in which the cranium was found is near the top of the lower normal magnetozone, which is identified as the Jaramillo subchron. Consequently, the human remains can be dated at approximately 1 million years before present...

    ..From these studies, we conclude that M. majori shows differences in adult facial morphology and possibly in ontogeny from M. sylvanus compatible with a specific rather than subspecific distinction...
