Earliest evidence of modern human life history in North African early Homo sapiens
Recent developmental studies demonstrate that early fossil hominins possessed shorter growth periods than living humans, implying disparate life histories. Analyses of incremental features in teethExpand

Enamel thickness, microstructure and development in Afropithecus turkanensis.
Afropithecus turkanensis, a 17-17.5 million year old large-bodied hominoid from Kenya, has previously been reported to be the oldest known thick-enamelled Miocene ape. Most investigations of enamelExpand

Dental evidence for ontogenetic differences between modern humans and Neanderthals
Humans have an unusual life history, with an early weaning age, long childhood, late first reproduction, short interbirth intervals, and long lifespan. In contrast, great apes wean later, reproduceExpand

Dental trait expression at the enamel-dentine junction of lower molars in extant and fossil hominoids.
Discrete dental traits are used as proxies for biological relatedness among modern human populations and for alpha taxonomy and phylogeny reconstruction within the hominin clade. We present aExpand

Barium distributions in teeth reveal early life dietary transitions in primates
Early-life dietary transitions reflect fundamental aspects of primate evolution and are important determinants of health in contemporary human populations. Weaning is critical to developmental andExpand

Advancing adaptation planning for climate change in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR): a review and critique
This paper reviews scientific and gray literature addressing climate change vulnerability and adaptation in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) in the western Canadian Arctic. The review isExpand

Variation in hominoid molar enamel thickness.
Enamel thickness has figured prominently in discussions of hominid origins for nearly a century, although little is known about its intra-taxon variation. It has been suggested that enamel thicknessExpand

Molar development in common chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes).
Numerous studies have reported on enamel and dentine development in hominoid molars, although little is known about intraspecific incremental feature variation. Furthermore, a recent histologicalExpand

Age at first molar emergence in early Miocene Afropithecus turkanensis and life-history evolution in the Hominoidea.
Among primates, age at first molar emergence is correlated with a variety of life history traits. Age at first molar emergence can therefore be used to broadly infer the life histories of fossilExpand

Modern human molar enamel thickness and enamel-dentine junction shape.
This study examines cross-sections of molar crowns in a diverse modern human sample to quantify variation in enamel thickness and enamel-dentine junction (EDJ) shape. Histological sections wereExpand
