    ..However, there are some important differences in the magnitude of integration and in phenotypic covariance structure among the species, which may provide some insight into how selection acted to differentiate humans from the great apes...

    Rebecca Rogers Ackermann
    Department of Archaeology, University of Cape Town, Rondebosch 7701, South Africa
    J Hum Evol 51:632-45. 2006
    ..Similar variation is also observed in museum samples drawn from natural hybrid zones. The results offer a strategy for detecting hybrid zones in the fossil record; implications for interpreting the hominin fossil record are discussed...

    J Hum Evol 43:167-87. 2002
    ..Additionally, neglecting to account for this divergence when using living analogues as variation "yardsticks" can give rise to interpretations of the fossil record that are more speciose than is warranted...
