    His dissertation research was on the functional postcranial morphology of treeshrews (Scandentia) and its significance for understanding primate supraordinal relationships and the phylogenetics of archontan mammals. Eric has also worked on the evolutionary morphology of Old World monkeys (Primates, Cercopithecidae) and marsupials. John Fleagle has improved on his text by reconceptualizing chapters and by bringing new findings in functional and evolutionary approaches to 5/5(1).

      This chapter provides a comprehensive review of the integument of primate hands. First, the structure of volar skin and nails is discussed. This is followed by a review of the anatomical diversity among nonhuman primates and a discussion of the functional significance of different specializations. The chapter ends with avenues for future by: 2. tion (premolars and molars). Paleoanthropologists use the dental formula to describe the number of each kind of tooth in one half of the maxilla and mandible of a species. Why only one half? Because primate morphology is the same on the left and right sides. For example, the dental formula for modern humans in /, which.

    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. The Evolution of the Primate Hand Anatomical, Developmental, Functional, and Paleontological Evidence. Functional Morphology of the Primate Hand: Recent Approaches Using Biomedical Imaging, Computer Modeling, and Engineering Methods This book demonstrates how the primate hand combines both primitive and novel morphology, both general.
