    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:6930-3. 2003
    ..Thus, the descent of the larynx and the morphological foundations for speech production must have evolved in part during hominoid evolution, and not in a single shift during hominid evolution...

    Takeshi Nishimura
    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, 41 Kanrin, Inuyama, Aichi 484 8506, Japan
    Primates 44:199-201. 2003
    ..This type of stick use by wild chimpanzees has not been recorded in any habitat. This finding should contribute to future studies and discussions of variations in tool use and cultural processes among wild chimpanzees...

    J Hum Evol 51:244-54. 2006
    ..Thus, the descent of the larynx per se is not unique to humans, and facial flattening was probably the major factor that paved the way for speech in the human lineage...
