    Patrik Lindenfors
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Gilmer Hall, Charlottesville, VA 22904 4328, USA
    Biol Lett 1:407-10. 2005
    ..This indicates that the social intelligence hypothesis only applies to female sociality...
  2. pmc Females drive primate social evolution
    Patrik Lindenfors
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Gilmer Hall, Charlottesville, VA 22903, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 271:S101-3. 2004
    ..This result is consistent with male numbers adjusting to female group size and highlights the importance of focusing on females when studying primate social evolution...

    P Lindenfors
    University of Virginia, Department of Biology, Charlottesville, VA 22903, USA
    J Evol Biol 19:1346-51. 2006
    ..We exemplify this problem by discussing a parallel in nature where the described problem may be of importance. This concerns the question of the presence or absence of Rensch's rule in primates...
  4. pmc Primate brain architecture and selection in relation to sex

    Sandra Thorén
    Department of Zoology, Stockholm University, 10691 Stockholm, Sweden
    Am J Phys Anthropol 130:50-9. 2006
    ..In conclusion, these analyses revealed that the effects of sexual selection on canine size are stronger than those on body size, perhaps indicating that canines are more important than body size in haplorhine male-male competition...

    Sonia Altizer
    Institute of Ecology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA
    J Anim Ecol 76:304-14. 2007
    ..Lower average parasite richness in threatened host taxa also points to the need for a better understanding of the cascading effects of host biodiversity loss for affiliated parasite species...

    Patrik Lindenfors
    Department of Zoology, Stockholm University, 106 91 Stockholm, Sweden
    Evolution 57:1952-6. 2003
    ..We therefore suggest that delayed implantation has been selected against in small species due to the relatively higher fecundity costs of a prolonged gestation period...

    Anders Gustafsson
    Department of Zoology, Stockholm University, SE 106 91, Sweden
    J Hum Evol 47:253-66. 2004
    ..Further, neither non-phylogenetic nor phylogenetic analyses revealed any allometric relationship between male and female stature. Thus, we found no support for the idea that sexual dimorphism increases with increasing stature in humans...
