    J Biomech 36:249-52. 2003
    ..Under reduced selection pressure for hand-carrying, but unreduced selection for mechanical effectiveness, we might expect humans to evolve a longer upper limb, to improve swing symmetry when unloaded...

    J Biomech 36:1237-46. 2003
    ..If mobility and stability under loading are the selective criteria, however, human size should not substantially increase in the future...

    W J Wang
    Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Biology, The University of Liverpool, UK
    J Anat 204:417-30. 2004
    ..Thus, selection for effectiveness in load-carrying, as well as in endurant walking, is indeed likely to have been implicated in the evolution of modern body proportions...

    Folia Primatol (Basel) 75:253-65. 2004
    ..During a slow walk, untrained chimpanzees were found to exert far greater muscle stresses than humans do when running at moderate speed, particularly in the muscles that extend the hip, because of the bent-hip, bent-knee posture...
