Primate communities by John G Fleagle( )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the behavior and ecology of primates have been more thoroughly studied than that of any other group of mammals, there have been very few attempts to compare the communities of living primates found in different parts of the world. In Primate Communities, an international group of experts compares the composition, behavior and ecology of primate communities in Africa, Asia, Madagascar and South America. They examine the factors underlying the similarities and differences between these communities, including their phylogenetic history, climate, rainfall, soil type, forest composition, competition with other vertebrates and human activities. As it brings together information about primate communities from around the world for the very first time, it will quickly become an important source book for researchers in anthropology, ecology and conservation, and a readable and informative text for undergraduate and graduate students studying primate ecology, primate conservation or primate behavior."--Jacket
Primate evolution and human origins by Russell L Ciochon( Book )

23 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Primate Evolution and Human Origins compiles, for the first time, the major ideas and publications that have shaped our current view of the evolutionary biology of the primates and the origin of the human line. Designed for freshmen-to-graduate students in anthropology, paleontology, and biology, the book is a unique collection of classic papers, culled from the past 20 years of research. It is also an important reference for academicians and researchers, as it covers the entire scope of primate and human evolution (with an emphasis on the fossil record). A comprehensive bibliography cites over 2000 significant articles not found in the main text."--Provided by publisher
Primate biogeography : progress and prospects by Shawn M Lehman( )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biogeography, the study of the distribution of organisms over the surface of the earth, plays a central role in our understanding of virtually all aspects of the biology of primates and other animals, including systematics, mechanisms of speciation, population genetics and demography. The distribution of primates relative to aspects of climate and habitat, including altitude, forest type, and food availability, forms the basis for our understanding of ecological and behavioral adaptations. The biogeography of primates in the past is a major component of our understanding of their evolutionary history and is an essential component of conservation biology. This volume, which brings together these papers on the biogeography of primates, past and present, provides an introduction to Primate Biogeography as a discipline, illustrates the many factors that may influence the distribution of primates, and demonstrates the wide range of methodological approaches that are available to understanding the distribution of this order
The first humans : origin and early evolution of the genus Homo : contributions from the third Stony Brook Human Evolution Symposium and Workshop, October 3-October 7, 2006 by Eric Delson( )

19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses the origin of the human genus Homo, a major transition in human evolution and associated with major changes in brain size, locomotion, and culture, but one with many unanswered questions. How many different species of Homo were there, and how were they interrelated? Are stone tools a characteristic of early Homo? What was their function? How does the use of stone tools relate to changes in the dentition and brain size? Did adaptations for long distance running first appear with the origin of this genus? How does this relate to its diet and cultural abilities
Elwyn Simons : a search for origins by John G Fleagle( )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a half century, Dr. Simons has dominated the study of primate evolution. This volume summarizes the current state of knowledge in many aspects of primate and human evolution that have been studied by Simons and his colleagues and place it in a broader paleontological and historical perspective
Out of Africa I : the first hominin colonization of Eurasia by John G Fleagle( )

23 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first two thirds of our evolutionary history, we hominins were restricted to Africa. Dating from about two million years ago, hominin fossils first appear in Eurasia. This volume addresses many of the issues surrounding this initial hominin intercontinental dispersal. Why did hominins first leave Africa in the early Pleistocene and not earlier? What do we know about the adaptations of the hominins that dispersed - their diet, locomotor abilities, cultural abilities? Was there a single dispersal event or several? Was the hominin dispersal part of a broader faunal expansion of African mammals northward? What route or routes did dispersing populations take?
The Human evolution source book by Russell L Ciochon( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of articles from 1952-1992 on paleo-anthropological research
The paleobiology of Australopithecus : contributions from the Fourth Stony Brook Human Evolution Symposium and Workshop, Diversity in Australopithecus : Tracking the First Bipeds, September 25-28, 2007 by Kaye E Reed( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Résumé de l' éditeur
Anthropoid origins by Callum Ross( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The Platyrrhine fossil record by John G Fleagle( )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Platyrrhine Fossil Record is a compendium of papers presented in a symposium of the 12th Congress of the International Congress of Primatology held in Brazil. One paper reviews evidence from fossil platyrrhines where the author concludes new dating and environmental data where these animals lived. Another paper describes the major changes pertaining to South American mammalian fauna during the Cenozoic Era, which he relates to global and regional geotectonic changes. Other papers review the paleontology and geology of the Miocene Pintura Formation and reassess the morphological transformat

The first humans : origin and early evolution of the genus homo by Frederick E Grine( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses the origin of the human genus Homo, a major transition in human evolution and associated with major changes in brain size, locomotion, and culture, but one with many unanswered questions. How many different species of Homo were there, and how were they interrelated? Are stone tools a characteristic of early Homo? What was their function? How does the use of stone tools relate to changes in the dentition and brain size? Did adaptations for long distance running first appear with the origin of this genus?

Primate locomotion : recent advances by Elizabeth Strasser( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of primate locomotion is a unique discipline that by its nature is interdis­ ciplinary, drawing on and integrating research from ethology, ecology, comparative anat­ omy, physiology, biomechanics, paleontology, etc. When combined and focused on particular problems this diversity of approaches permits unparalleled insight into critical aspects of our evolutionary past and into a major component of the behavioral repertoire of all animals. Unfortunately, because of the structure of academia, integration of these different approaches is a rare phenomenon. For instance, papers on primate behavior tend to be published in separate specialist journals and read by subgroups of anthropologists and zoologists, thus precluding critical syntheses. In the spring of 1995 we overcame this compartmentalization by organizing a con­ ference that brought together experts with many different perspectives on primate locomo­ tion to address the current state of the field and to consider where we go from here. The conference, Primate Locomotion-1995, took place thirty years after the pioneering confer­ ence on the same topic that was convened by the late Warren G. Kinzey at Davis in 1965
