  1. Robertson B. Viral hepatitis and primates: historical and molecular analysis of human and nonhuman primate hepatitis A, B, and the GB-related viruses. J Viral Hepat. 2001;8:233-42 pubmed
    ..This review summarizes the historical and molecular information for each of these groups and highlights the impact of these nonhuman primate hepatitis viruses on our understanding of the evolution of each of these viruses. ..
  2. Cantalupo C, Hopkins W. Asymmetric Broca's area in great apes. Nature. 2001;414:505 pubmed
    ..Our findings suggest that the neuroanatomical substrates for left-hemisphere dominance in speech production were evident at least five million years ago and are not unique to hominid evolution. ..
  3. Gillespie T, Morgan D, Deutsch J, Kuhlenschmidt M, Salzer J, Cameron K, et al. A legacy of low-impact logging does not elevate prevalence of potentially pathogenic protozoa in free-ranging gorillas and chimpanzees in the Republic of Congo: logging and parasitism in African apes. Ecohealth. 2009;6:557-64 pubmed publisher
    ..These results provide a baseline for prevalence of these protozoa in forest-dwelling African apes and suggest that low-intensity logging may not result in long-term elevated prevalence of potentially pathogenic protozoa. ..

  6. de Waal F. The antiquity of empathy. Science. 2012;336:874-6 pubmed publisher
    ..As indicated by both observational and experimental studies on our closest relatives, empathy may be the main motivator of prosocial behavior. ..

    ..It is time to celebrate the progress of our field, to anticipate its significance, and to emphasize conservation of primates in their natural habitats. ..
  8. Cáceres M, Thomas J. The gene of retroviral origin Syncytin 1 is specific to hominoids and is inactive in Old World monkeys. J Hered. 2006;97:100-6 pubmed
    ..Our results indicate that Syncytin 1 is indeed a hominoid-specific gene and illustrate the complex and dynamic process associated with the origin of new genes...

    ..Thus, adaptive single-gene losses have the potential to influence the long-term evolutionary fate of functionally interrelated genes. ..
  2. Stout D, Semaw S, Rogers M, Cauche D. Technological variation in the earliest Oldowan from Gona, Afar, Ethiopia. J Hum Evol. 2010;58:474-91 pubmed publisher
    ..We propose that cultural transmission and ecological adaptation should be recognized as complementary, rather than mutually exclusive, mechanisms in future attempts to explain Oldowan technological variation...

    ..IGF 11778 does not exhibit the degree of anisotropy characterizing Trachypithecus and Alouatta. The partial resemblance of IGF 11778 to some great ape specimens may indicate intermittent extractive and or terrestrial foraging. ..
