Standardized descriptions of primate locomotor and postural modes
As quantitative studies on primate positional behavior accumulate the lack of a standard positional mode terminology is becoming an increasingly serious deficiency. Inconsistent use of traditionalExpand

Estimators of Fruit Abundance of Tropical Trees1
Many types of biological studies require the estimation of food abundance in tropical forests, and a variety of methods have been used to estimate this parameter. Here we compare the accuracy andExpand

A hominoid genus from the early Miocene of Uganda.
Fossils from a large-bodied hominoid from early Miocene sediments of Uganda, along with material recovered in the 1960s, show features of the shoulder and vertebral column that are significantlyExpand

Locomotor diversity in prosimian primates
  • D. Gebo
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of primatology
  • 1987
An understanding of prosimian movement is basic to many anatomical and paleontological studies in that these studies attempt to correlate movement with anatomy and therefore infer movement in fossilExpand

Postcranial functional morphology of Morotopithecus bishopi, with implications for the evolution of modern ape locomotion.
The large-bodied hominoid from Moroto, Uganda has until recently been known only from proconsulid like craniodental remains and some vertebrae with modern ape like features. The discovery of twoExpand

Plantigrady and foot adaptation in African apes: implications for hominid origins.
  • D. Gebo
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of physical anthropology
