- The Neanderthal taxonomic position: models of intra- and inter-specific craniofacial variation
Department of Anthropology, New York University, 25 Waverly Place, 10003, New York, NY, USA
J Hum Evol 44:107-32. 2003
..This study does not find evidence for Neanderthal contribution to the evolution of modern Europeans. Results are consistent with the recognition of Neanderthals as a distinct species...
- Quantitative analysis of Neanderthal temporal bone morphology using three-dimensional geometric morphometrics
Department of Anthropology, New York University, New York, New York 10003, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 120:323-38. 2003
..They were much further in Mahalanobis distances from all modern human populations than any two modern human groups were from each other. Most of the previously described temporal bone traits contributed to this separation...
- Neanderthal taxonomy reconsidered: implications of 3D primate models of intra- and interspecific differences
Department of Anthropology, New York University, 25 Waverly Place, New York, NY 10003, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:1147-52. 2004
..Morphological distances between model taxon pairs were compared to the distances between Neanderthals and modern humans obtained by using a randomization technique. Results strongly support a specific distinction for Neanderthals...
- Refined age estimates and Paleoanthropological investigation of the Manyara Beds, Tanzania
Department of Anthropology, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403 1218, USA
J Anthropol Sci 90:151-61. 2012
..Furthermore, the presence of potential cut-marks on the surface of a bovid mandible may represent the first evidence for human modification of bones from the Manyara Beds...
- Quantitative analysis of human mandibular shape using three-dimensional geometric morphometrics
Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois 60611 3008, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 131:368-83. 2006
..Of these, the retromolar gap was found to be related to increased mandibular size in modern humans. The status of this trait as a Neanderthal autapomorphy should therefore be treated with caution...
- Human cranial anatomy and the differential preservation of population history and climate signatures
Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol 288:1225-33. 2006
..Because different cranial regions preserve population history and climate signatures differentially, caution is suggested when using cranial anatomy for phylogenetic reconstruction...
- The Neanderthal "chignon": variation, integration, and homology
Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz 6, D 04103 Leipzig, Germany
J Hum Evol 52:262-74. 2007
..Our analysis does not support differences in integration of the posterior midsagittal profile and the cranial base in Pleistocene and recent humans...
- Cioclovina (Romania): affinities of an early modern European
Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz 6, Leipzig, Germany
J Hum Evol 53:732-46. 2007
..Our results show Cioclovina to be entirely modern in its cranial shape, and do not support the hypothesis that it represents a hybrid...

J Hum Evol 45:465-73. 2003
