Adaptive radiation of the ateline primates
Abstract We propose a synthesis of anatomical, behavioral and ecological data in reconstructing the phylogeny and evolution of the ateline primates. The atelines are a monophyletic group divisibleExpand

Xenothrix and ceboid phylogeny
The known morphology of the subfossil Jamaican primate, Xenothrix mcgregori, is described and systematically analyzed. A provisional phylogeny of living ceboid genera, based upon cladisticExpand

New primate genus from the Miocene of Argentina.
Killikaike blakei is a new genus and species of anthropoid from the late Early Miocene of southeastern Argentina based on the most pristine fossil platyrrhine skull and dentition known so far. It isExpand

Dental variability inSaimiri and the taxonomic status ofNeosaimiri fieldsi, an early squirrel monkey from La Venta, Colombia
Neosaimiri fieldsi, from the South American middle Miocene locality of La Venta, is represented by a relatively complete mandible and dentition that strongly resembles that of extantSaimiri.Expand

The fossil record of callitrichine primates
Six out of the 16 recognized species of fossil New World monkeys have been discussed as possible relatives of the modern callitrichines. The dental evidence for these views is examined, with emphasisExpand

Fossil New World monkeys dispute the molecular clock
New World monkeys offer an empirical test of the accuracy of molecular clocks. A phylogenetic reconstruction based upon craniodental morphology suggests that platyrrhine clades and generic lineagesExpand

Platyrrhine Ecophylogenetics in Space and Time
We are far from developing an informed synthesis regarding the evolution of New World Monkeys – probably decades away. For even with the important strides made over the past 30–40 years regardingExpand

Diagnosis and Differentiation of the Order Primates
We contrast our approach to a phylogenetic diagnosis of the order Primates, and its various supraspecific taxa, with definitional proce- dures. The order, which we divide into the semiordersExpand
