Postcranial Adaptation in Nonhuman Primates Paperback – November 1, this collection of essays offers a comprehensive overview of function and adaptation in the postcranial skeleton of living and fossil nonhuman primates. Following an essay on the biomechanics of primate limbs, seven essays address major aspects of functional Price: $ All Primate Postcranial Elements. Featuring casts of our entire catalog of non-human primate postcrania--modern apes, New World monkeys, Old World--as well as sets demonstrating intermembral index for indicating locomotion patterns and other concepts for primatology studies. Postcrania (postcranium, adjective: postcranial) in zoology and vertebrate paleontology refers to all or part of the skeleton apart from the ntly, fossil remains, e.g. of dinosaurs or other extinct tetrapods, consist of partial or isolated skeletal elements; these are referred to as "postcrania".. Sometimes, there is disagreement over whether the skull and skeleton belong to the. Although the postcranial skeleton serves nu-merous functions, we focus our basic introduction on skeletal features associated with locomotion (Figure ). In this regard, the primate skeleton can be divided into three parts: the axial skeleton, the forelimbs, and the hindlimbs. The axial skeleton is com-posed predominantly of the vertebrae and.
Incorporating the latest research of leading scholars in the field, this collection of essays offers a comprehensive overview of function and adaptation in the postcranial skeleton of living and fossil nonhuman primates. Following an essay on the biomechanics of primate limbs, seven essays Price: $ Basics of Primate Dentition and the Muscles of Mastication Additional Leves of Complexity in the Study of Tooth Morphology Exploring Dental Variability Across the Primate Order: Contrasts by Diet and by Taxon: Strepsirhines, Tarsiers, Platyrrhines, Cercopithecoids and Hominoids Examined. Part IV: The Primate Postcranial Skeleton. Evolution of hallucial grasping in primates --Implications of postcranial evidence for the origin of euprimates --Ankle and foot morphology of Cantius mckennai: adaptations and phylogenetic implications --Carpal anatomy of Smilodectes gracilis (Adapiformes, Notharctinae) and its significance for lemuriform phylogeny --Adaptive diversification. Primate Adaptation and Evolution, Third Edition, is a thorough revision of the text of choice for courses in primate evolution. The book retains its grounding in the extant primate groups as the best way to understand the fossil trail and the evolution of these modern forms.
