Unusual pubic bone morphology in A.L. 288‐1 (Australopithecus afarensis) and MH2 (Australopithecus sediba).

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American Journal of Biological Anthropology. Mar2023, Vol. 180 Issue 3, p573-582. 10p.

Abstract: Objectives: We describe a novel pelvic feature, the "ventral sulcus," located on the pubic bone ventrolateral to the pubic symphysis, which is present in A.L. 288‐1 (Australopithecus afarensis) and MH2 (Australopithecus sediba). We determine how widesp...

Walks of Life.

Publication Type: Periodical

New fossils of Australopithecus sediba reveal a nearly complete lower back.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): eLife. 11/23/2021, p1-25. 25p.

Abstract: Adaptations of the lower back to bipedalism are frequently discussed but infrequently demonstrated in early fossil hominins. Newly discovered lumbar vertebrae contribute to a near-complete lower back of Malapa Hominin 2 (MH2), offering additional insig...

Archaic hominins maiden voyage in the Mediterranean Sea.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Quaternary International. Feb2023, Vol. 646, p11-21. 11p.

Abstract: When archaic hominins started sea-crossings and whether or not seas were barriers to their dispersal, is highly debated. This paper attempts to provide insights into these issues, focusing on the Aegean Sea. The study shows that the Central Aegean Isla...

Mugharet el'Aliya: Affinities of an enigmatic north African Aterian maxillary fragment.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American Journal of Biological Anthropology. Feb2023, Vol. 180 Issue 2, p352-369. 18p.

Abstract: Objectives: This study uses a virtual framework to examine the left maxillary fragment of the juvenile fossil from Mugharet el'Aliya, Morocco, found in association with an Aterian lithic industry. Previously, this fossil had been ascribed to modern hum...

Crown tissue proportions and enamel thickness distribution in early Pleistocene Homo antecessor maxillary premolars (Atapuerca, Spain).

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American Journal of Biological Anthropology. Feb2023, Vol. 180 Issue 2, p370-385. 16p.

Abstract: Objectives: Both morphometric and proteomic studies have revealed the close relationship of Homo antecessor with Neanderthals and H. sapiens. Considering this relationship, we aim to characterize the Early Pleistocene Atapuerca‐Gran Dolina (TD6) maxill...

Interpopulational variation in human brain size: implications for hominin cognitive phylogeny.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Anthropological Review. Dec2021, Vol. 84 Issue 4, p405-429. 25p.

Abstract: Throughout the hominin lineage brain size is believed to have increased threefold – increase which, it is argued by some researchers, results in the enhanced brain power that distinguishes humans from any other living being. However, as we demonstrate ...

The Inevitably Incomplete Story of Human Evolution.

Publication Type: Periodical

Source(s): American Scientist. Mar/Apr2023, Vol. 111 Issue 2, p106-113. 8p. 4 Color Photographs, 1 Diagram.

Human Genetic Research in Wallacea and Sahul: Recent Findings and Future Prospects.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Genes. Dec2022, Vol. 13 Issue 12, p2373. 11p.

Abstract: Genomic sequence data from worldwide human populations have provided a range of novel insights into our shared ancestry and the historical migrations that have shaped our global genetic diversity. However, a comprehensive understanding of these fundame...

Javanese Homo erectus on the move in SE Asia circa 1.8 Ma.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Scientific Reports. 11/8/2022, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p1-12. 12p.

Abstract: The migration of Homo erectus in Southeast Asia during Early Pleistocene is cardinal to our comprehension of the evolution of the genus Homo. However, the limited consideration of the rapidly changing physical environment, together with controversial d...
