Implications of postcranial evidence for the origin of euprimates
Abstract Lemuriforms, Tarsius , anthropoids, adapids, and omomyids share numerous derived postcranial features which support monophyly of the Euprimates and indicate that the archaic primate toExpand

Postcranium of Adapis parisiensis and Leptadapis magnus (Adapiformes, Primates)
The late Eocene European adapid Adapis parisiensis shares many postcranial features with the extant Lorisinae, suggesting that it was a nonleaping, slow-moving arboreal quadruped. The slightly older L

The oldest known primate skeleton and early haplorhine evolution
Reconstructing the earliest phases of primate evolution has been impeded by gaps in the fossil record, so that disagreements persist regarding the palaeobiology and phylogenetic relationships of theExpand

Locomotor adaptations as reflected on the humerus of paleogene primates.
Examination of Paleogene distal humeri and a survey of homologous articulations in living primates allows some anatomical correlation with elbow mechanics and the occurrence of these during specificExpand

Evolution of hallucial grasping in the primates
Abstract Homology of the adaptive solutions of grasping, like other attributes of the postcranial skeleton, have long been assumed for marsupials, early eutherians, and euprimates. Evidence isExpand

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

Middle Eocene primate tarsals from China: implications for haplorhine evolution.
We describe tarsal remains of primates recovered from the Middle Eocene (approximately 45 mya) Shanghuang fissures in southern Jiangsu Province, China. These tarsals document the existence of fourExpand

Studies of primate positional behavior have only occasionally employed statistical testing because these data sets violate the assumptions underlying most standard statistical tests. As currentlyExpand
