Paleoanthropology of the Malawi Rift: an early hominid mandible from the Chiwondo Beds, northern Malawi
Abstract The Hominid Corridor Research Project has recovered a mandibular corpus, UR 501, containing third and fourth premolars and first and second molars in variable states of preservation, from…
Re-evaluation of the age at death of immature fossil hominids
It is shown for the first time that Plio-Pleistocene hominids had markedly abbreviated growth periods relative to modern man, similar to those of the modern great apes.

Lamellar Bone is an Incremental Tissue Reconciling Enamel Rhythms, Body Size, and Organismal Life History
This study examines the relationship among long-period enamel rhythms, the striae of Retzius, and body mass using a large sample of mammalian taxa to seek a rhythm in bone growth demonstrably related to enamel oscillatory development and confirms that lamellar bone is an incremental tissue.

A grey-level standard useful for quantitative CPL investigations of collagen fiber orientation in bone is described, based upon mineralized turkey tendon, which shall be provided to investigators upon request.
Primate enamel evinces long period biological timing and regulation of life history.
Requirements for ion and solute transport, and pH regulation during enamel maturation
Estimation of relative mRNA levels of individual SLC, Cftr, and CAs in enamel cells obtained from secretory and maturation stages on rat incisors shows that the expression levels of multiple genes regulating extracellular pH are modulated during enamel maturation in response to an increased need for pH buffering during hydroxyapatite crystal growth.

It is concluded that it is possible to characterize a forming surface as abraded according to the findings of this study and that acid, if handled with care, will more likely preserve microanatomical surface detail.
Enamel incremental periodicity in the pig‐tailed macaque: A polychrome fluorescent labeling study of dental hard tissues

In this study, developing teeth in Mucacu nemestrina were labeled with polychrome fluorescent dyes and the distribution of these dyes in two sectioned teeth provides mental confirmation of enamel circadian periodicity.
