    L MacLatchy
    Department of Anthropology, Boston University, MA 02215, USA
    J Hum Evol 39:159-83. 2000
    ..If the suspensory and orthograde adaptations linking Morotopithecus to extant apes are synapomorphies, Morotopithecus may be the only well-documented African Miocene hominoid with a close relationship to living apes and humans...

    Laura MacLatchy
    Department of Anthropology, Boston University, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    J Hum Evol 43:89-105. 2002
    ..Ultimately, a synthesis of these different lines of evidence may have considerable applications in paleontological studies that attempt to reconstruct bone use from morphology...

    Department of Biology, Hiram College, Hiram, Ohio, 44234, U S A
    J Hum Evol 42:705-52. 2002
    ..They suggest a locomotor repertoire dominated by pronograde activities and also such antipronograde activities as vertical climbing and clambering, but not by antipronograde suspensory activities as practiced by extant apes...

    Institut de Paleontologia M Crusafont DB Unidad Asociada CSIC, 08201 Sabadell, Spain
    Am J Phys Anthropol 119:297-304. 2002
    ..Paidopithex could be a large and otherwise unknown pliopithecid, but the possibility cannot be ruled out that it represents a third kind of catarrhine...
  5. ncbi request reprint The phylogenetic position of Morotopithecus
    Nathan M Young
    Department of Anthropology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Hum Evol 46:163-84. 2004
    ..Many of the characters used to estimate phylogeny may need to be reassessed before a reliable assessment of the phylogenetic position of Morotopithecus can be achieved...

    J Hum Evol 50:568-86. 2006
    ..Phylogenetic analysis of Lomorupithecus along with 35 other primates indicates that it is a pliopithecoid. As such, it would be the oldest and only Afro-Arabian member of this otherwise Eurasian clade...
