- Catarrhine primate divergence dates estimated from complete mitochondrial genomes: concordance with fossil and nuclear DNA evidenceRyan L Raaum
New York University, Department of Anthropology, 25 Waverly Place, New York, NY 10003, USA
J Hum Evol 48:237-57. 2005..p. abelii, 4.1 (3.5-4.7) Ma; and Pan troglodytes-P. paniscus, 2.4 (2.0-2.7) Ma. These dates were similar to those found using penalized likelihood on other subsets of the data, but slightly younger than several of the Bayesian estimates...

Mol Phylogenet Evol 75:165-83. 2014..It also suggests that the early primate fossil record is likely poorly sampled. ..
- Culture modifies expectations of kinship and sex-biased dispersal patterns: a case study of patrilineality and patrilocality in tribal YemenRyan L Raaum
Department of Anthropology, Lehman College and The Graduate Center, City University of New York, Bronx, NY 10468, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 150:526-38. 2013..We discuss ethnographic accounts that offer several cultural practices that explain exceptions to patrilocality and means by which social kinship and genetic patriline may become disentangled...

Department of Anthropology, New York University, 25 Waverly Place, New York, NY, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 40:1-7. 2006..This phylogenetic information will aid those developing conservation strategies for these highly endangered, diverse, and unique primates...
- Successive radiations, not stasis, in the South American primate faunaJason A Hodgson
Center for the Study of Human Origins, Department of Anthropology, New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:5534-9. 2009..We note that the crown platyrrhine radiation was concomitant with the radiation of 2 South American xenarthran lineages and follows a global temperature peak and tectonic activity in the Andes...

Department of Anthropology, Lehman College, The City University of New York, The Bronx, NY, USA
Biotechniques 48:449-54. 2010..These results will be of value in preselection of samples for more in-depth analysis as well as customized identification of maximally informative polymorphic markers for regional studies...
- Mitochondrial DNA reveals distinct evolutionary histories for Jewish populations in Yemen and EthiopiaAmy L Non
Department of Anthropology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 144:1-10. 2011..In contrast, the Ethiopian Jewish population appears to be a subset of the larger Ethiopian population suggesting descent primarily through conversion of local women...
