    ..The specialized locomotor anatomies and behaviors of chimpanzees and gorillas therefore constitute poor models for the origin and evolution of human bipedality. ..

    ..It therefore contributes to a fuller understanding of troodontid biogeography through time. It also adds to the known dinosaurian fauna of the Cedar Mountain Formation. ..

    ..While the anatomy of the wrist, thorax and hindlimb in Equatorius is similar to that of Afropithecus and Proconsul, the morphology of the new skeleton confirms earlier interpretations of greater terrestriality in Equatorius...
  5. Oliveri P, Tu Q, Davidson E. Global regulatory logic for specification of an embryonic cell lineage. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2008;105:5955-62 pubmed publisher
    ..The GRN precisely predicts gene expression responses and provides a coherent explanation of the biology of specification...
  6. Maga A, Beck R. Skeleton of an unusual, cat-sized marsupial relative (Metatheria: Marsupialiformes) from the middle Eocene (Lutetian: 44-43 million years ago) of Turkey. PLoS ONE. 2017;12:e0181712 pubmed publisher
    ..Nevertheless, the new taxon reveals previously unsuspected ecomorphological disparity among northern hemisphere metatherians during the first half of the Cenozoic...

    ..Our observations suggest differential tissue consequences due to selective inactivation of P3H1 hydroxylase activity versus complete ablation of the prolyl 3-hydroxylation complex. ..

    ..Moreover, we provide evidence that a significant number of derived, putatively adaptive variants associated with pathogen resistance in modern Europeans were already present in this hunter-gatherer. ..

    ..Retention of a whole or partial dead fetus can be life-threatening to manatees, and retained tissues should be removed as early as possible...
