- The face of Strigorhysis: implications of another tarsier-like, large-eyed Eocene North American tarsiiform primateAlfred L Rosenberger
Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, Brooklyn College, The City University of New York, New York, USA
Anat Rec (Hoboken) 294:797-812. 2011..The overwhelming evidence from the skull and from phylogenetics makes it a vanishingly small possibility that Tarsius is more closely relate to anthropoids than to a subset of FTs...
- The making of platyrrhine semifolivores: models for the evolution of folivory in primatesAlfred L Rosenberger
Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, Brooklyn College, CUNY, Brooklyn, New York, USA
Anat Rec (Hoboken) 294:2112-30. 2011..We propose it is ultimately rooted in a pre-euprimate reliance on the seeds and seed coats of primitive angiosperms before the latter evolved attractive sugary fruits to coax primates into becoming dispersers of seeds, instead consumers...
- Evolutionary morphology, platyrrhine evolution, and systematicsAlfred L Rosenberger
Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, Brooklyn College, The City University of New York, Brooklyn, USA
Anat Rec (Hoboken) 294:1955-74. 2011..Intentionally designed not to enlist the rich reservoir of platyrrhine evolutionary morphology, an empirical assessment of the costs incurred by this research stratagem reveals inconsistent, nonrepeatable, and often conflicting results...
- An extinct monkey from Haiti and the origins of the Greater Antillean primatesSiobhán B Cooke
Graduate Center, City University of New York, New York, NY 10016, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:2699-704. 2011..Several features tie the new species to the extinct Jamaican monkey Xenothrix mcgregori, perhaps providing additional evidence for an inter-Antillean clade...
- Craniofacial architectural constraints and their importance for reconstructing the early Homo skull KNM-ER 1470Timothy G Bromage
Department of Biomaterials and Biomimetics, New York University College of Dentistry, 345 East 24th Street, New York, NY 10010, USA
J Clin Pediatr Dent 33:43-54. 2008..We are motivated to perform this study because in the absence of biological criteria our preconceptions are likely to govern our concept of craniofacial form...
- Frontal fusion: collapse of another anthropoid synapomorphyAlfred L Rosenberger
Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, Brooklyn College, CUNY, Brooklyn, NY 10016 4309, USA
Anat Rec (Hoboken) 291:308-17. 2008..The zygomatico-frontal suture of the septum may provide an alternative mechanism for dissipating the calvarial strains of mastication formerly taken up by an open interfrontal suture...
- Taxon combinations, parsimony analysis (PAUP*), and the taxonomy of the yellow-tailed woolly monkey, Lagothrix flavicaudaLuke J Matthews
Department of Anthropology, New York University, New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology, New York, NY 10003, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 137:245-55. 2008..Some recommendations to minimize the problem, which is prevalent in all cladistic analyses, are proposed...
