- Brief communication: arboreal bipedalism in Bwindi chimpanzeesCraig B Stanford
Jane Goodall Research Center, Department of Anthropology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90089 0032, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 119:87-91. 2002..These observations suggest that under certain ecological conditions, arboreal bipedalism can be an important posture for wild chimpanzees, and may have been an important behavioral precursor to full terrestrial bipedalism...
- The behavioral ecology of sympatric African apes: implications for understanding fossil hominoid ecologyCraig B Stanford
Department of Anthropology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089 0032, USA
Primates 47:91-101. 2006..The paper concludes by suggesting likely characteristics of sympatric associations of Pliocene hominids, based on field data from extant sympatric apes...
- Arboreal bipedalism in wild chimpanzees: implications for the evolution of hominid posture and locomotionCraig B Stanford
Department of Anthropology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, 90089 0032, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 129:225-31. 2006..It suggests important arboreal advantages in upright posture. The origin of postural bipedalism may have preceded and been causally disconnected from locomotor bipedalism...
- Sleeping tree choice by Bwindi chimpanzeesCraig B Stanford
Department of Anthropology, Jane Goodall Research Center, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089 0032, USA
Am J Primatol 70:642-9. 2008..Bwindi chimpanzees' choice of nesting tree species does not appear to be dependent on tree species density or use of the tree for food. We discuss possible reasons for the selectivity in nest trees by the Bwindi population...
- Meat-adaptive genes and the evolution of slower aging in humansCaleb E Finch
Andrus Gerontology Center, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90089, USA
Q Rev Biol 79:3-50. 2004..Other evolved genes mediate lipid metabolism and host defense. The timing of the evolution of apoE and other candidates for meat-adaptive genes is discussed in relation to key events in human evolution...
