About this book

This well-illustrated volume brings together discussions on the latest discoveries and current theories concerning the origin and early evolution of anthropoid primates-monkeys, apes, and humans. Leading researchers address many aspects of anthropoid origins from a variety of perspectives. Articles consider anthropoid origins from the perspective of the prosimians, and discuss the anthropoid perspective to describe early anthropoid radiation. Articles examine both prosimians and anthropoids using cranial, dental, and postcranial features.
