European Miocene Hominids and the Origin of the African Ape and Human Clade
It is somewhat more probable that the authors' early progenitors lived on the African continent than elsewhere, and since so remote a period the earth has certainly undergone many great revolutions, and there has been ample time for migration on the largest scale. Expand
U-Pb and 40Ar/39Ar dating of the Miocene fossil track site at Ipolytarnóc (Hungary) and its implications
Abstract Abundant Early Miocene mammal and bird tracks and a rich plant assemblage is preserved by the emplacement of an ignimbrite sheet of the Gyulakeszi Rhyolite Tuff Formation (GRTF) nearExpand
Microtoid cricetids and the early history of arvicolids (Mammalia, Rodentia)
In response to environmental changes in the Northern hemisphere, several lines of brachyodont-bunodont cricetid rodents evolved during the Late Miocene as “microtoid cricetids.” Major evolutionaryExpand
Phyletic Affinities and Functional Convergence in Dryopithecus and Other Miocene and Living Hominids
In this chapter the anatomy of Dryopithecus is reviewed in comparison with other hominoids and a phylogenetic alternative chosen on the basis of functional and phylogenetic criteria will be discussed. Expand
Genetic differentiation of Texas Gulf Coast populations of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus
The spatial heterogeneity in allelic frequencies suggests that interpopulation gene flow is not sufficient to overcome population differentiation resulting from genetic drift and/or natural selection and seasonal changes in larval source populations may result from population differences in spawning season or developmental times.

  • 7 September 2012
An analysis of semicircular canal size variation in 16 fossil anthropoid species dating from the Late Eocene to the Late Miocene is reported, and these data are used to reconstruct evolutionary changes in locomotor adaptations in anthropoid primates over the last 35 Ma. Expand
Primates from Rudabánya: allocation of specimens to individuals, sex and age categories.
Both species are represented primarily by dental remains, but those of Dryopithecus are more commonly associated with mandibles and maxillae, while in Anapithecus most individuals are represented by associated dentitions. Expand
Recent Advances on Multidisciplinary Research at Rudabánya, Late Miocene (MN9), Hungary: a compendium
It is found that there are 112 vertebrate taxa recorded from Rudabanya, 69 of which are fossil mammals, and that these central and western European localities contra- st strikingly with correlative eastern Mediterranean-Southwest Asian localities in their community structure. Expand
Rudabánya: A late miocene subtropical swamp deposit with evidence of the origin of the African apes and humans
Rudabánya, a rich late Miocene fossil site in northern central Hungary, has yielded an abundant record of fossil primates, including the primitive catarrhine Anapithecus and the early great ape Dryopithecus, thus dating the split between pongines and hominines to a time before the evolution of these fossil great apes.
