    Department of Anatomical Sciences, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794 8081, USA
    J Hum Evol 49:36-55. 2005
    ..A flexible locomotor repertoire in conjunction with a eurytopic trophic adaptation allowed Archaeolemur to inhabit much of Madagascar and may explain why it was one of the latest surviving subfossil lemurs...

    W L Jungers
    Department of Anatomical Sciences, Stony Brook University Medical Center, NY 11794 8081, USA
    J Hum Evol 57:538-54. 2009
    ..The metatarsus has a human-like robusticity formula, but the proximal pedal phalanges are relatively long and robust (and slightly curved). The hallux is fully adducted, but we suspect that a medial longitudinal arch was absent...

    J D Polk
    Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences, SUNY at Stony Brook, NY, 11794 4364, USA
    J Hum Evol 39:297-325. 2000
    ..In summary, arboreal and terrestrial species do not show consistent differences in long bone reinforcement, and Kimura's conclusions must be modified to take into account the interaction of bone length and cross-sectional geometry...
  4. ncbi request reprint Cortical bone distribution in the femoral neck of strepsirhine primates
    B Demes
    Dept of Anatomical Sciences, State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY 11794 8081, USA
    J Hum Evol 39:367-79. 2000
    ..g., a thicker inferior cortex is required to reinforce the strongly curved inferior surface). As in prior studies of cross-sectional geometry of long bones, we found slightly positive allometry of cortical dimensions with body mass...

    F E Grine
    Department of Anthropology, State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY 11794 4364, USA
    Arch Oral Biol 46:1117-25. 2001
    ..Quantitative data on enamel thickness from studies that have employed lateral radiographs should be viewed with circumspection...

    M R Lague
    Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences, State University of New York at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, NY 11794, USA
    J Hum Evol 36:379-99. 1999
    ..We anticipate finding additional pattern differences among anthropoids in articular dimorphism as we add other taxa to our sample (including fossil hominids), and examine other joint systems...

    B Demes
    Department of Anatomical Sciences, School of Medicine, State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY 11794 8081, USA
    J Hum Evol 37:279-92. 1999
    ..Forces associated with other locomotor activities do not appear to follow this pattern. The very high forces found in strepsirhine leapers do not seem to be matched by bone robusticity beyond that documented for quadrupedal species...

    S G Larson
    Department of Anatomical Sciences, Stony Brook University Medical Center, NY 11794 8081, USA
    J Hum Evol 57:555-70. 2009

    W L Jungers
    Department of Anatomical Sciences, Stony Brook University Medical Center, Stony Brook, New York 11794 8081, USA
    Nature 459:81-4. 2009
    ..These new findings raise the possibility that the ancestor of H. floresiensis was not Homo erectus but instead some other, more primitive, hominin whose dispersal into southeast Asia is still undocumented...
