Estimating the body size of eocene primates: A comparison of results from dental and postcranial variables
Estimating body weights for fossil primates is an important step in reconstructing aspects of their behavior and ecology. To date, the body size of Eocene euprimates—the Adapidae and Omomyidae—hasExpand

Body weights of wild and captive lemurs
The mean body weight of a species is often used as a summary measure of size in evolutionary and functional studies. Additionally, body weight is often used to assess the health of captive animals.Expand

Comparative Perspectives on Bimaturism, Ontogeny, and Dimorphism in Lemurid Primates
We address questions regarding the general absence of dimorphism in lemurid primates (Hapalemur, Eulemur, and Varecia) through comparative analyses of ontogeny. We described and analyzed body massExpand

Regional variability in secondary remodeling within long bone cortices of catarrhine primates: the influence of bone growth history
Secondary intracortical remodeling of bone varies considerably among and within vertebrate skeletons. Although prior research has shed important light on its biomechanical significance, factorsExpand

The effects of core suture purchase on the biomechanical characteristics of a multistrand locking flexor tendon repair: a cadaveric study.
PURPOSE To determine the effects of suture purchase on work of flexion (WOF), 2-mm gap force, and load to failure on the combination cross-locked cruciate-interlocking horizontal mattress (CLC-IHM)Expand

Muscle Mass Scaling in Primates: An Energetic and Ecological Perspective
Body composition is known to vary dramatically among mammals, even in closely related species, yet this issue has never been systematically investigated. Here, we examine differences in muscle massExpand

Genetic randomization reveals functional relationships among morphologic and tissue-quality traits that contribute to bone strength and fragility
We examined femora from adult AXB/BXA recombinant inbred (RI) mouse strains to identify skeletal traits that are functionally related and to determine how functional interactions among these traitsExpand

Lack of sexual dimorphism in femora of the eusocial and hypogonadic naked mole-rat: a novel animal model for the study of delayed puberty on the skeletal system.
Sex steroid hormones are major determinants of bone morphology and quality and are responsible for sexually dimorphic skeletal traits. Hypogonadism results in suboptimal skeletal development and mayExpand
