About this book

An insightful new work, Function, Phylogeny, and Fossils integrates two practices in paleobiology which are often separated – functional and phylogenetic analysis. Function, Phylogeny, and Fossils summarizes the evidence on paleoenvironments at the most important Miocene hominoid sites and relates it to the pertinent fossil record. The contributors present the most up-to-date statements on the functional anatomy and likely behavior of the best known hominoids of this crucial period of ape and human evolution. A key feature is a comprehensive table listing 240 characteristics among 13 genera of living and extinct hominoids.
