THE QUANTITATIVE ASSESSMENT OF PHYLOGENETIC CONSTRAINTS IN COMPARATIVE ANALYSES: SEXUAL DIMORPHISM IN BODY WEIGHT AMONG PRIMATES
We have presented a formal model for the quantitative analysis of phylogenetic and specific effects on the distribution of trait values among species. Total trait values are divided into phylogeneticExpand

Functional aspects of pelvic morphology in simian Primates
Abstract In functional analyses of the Primate pelvis only selective forces resulting from locomotory functions have traditionally been taken into account, therefore neglecting possible selectiveExpand

Scaling of sexual dimorphism in body size and breeding system in primates
RENSCH1,2 showed, more than 20 years ago, that sexual dimorphism in body size tends to increase with increasing body size in various arthropod and avian taxa. Recently, the same positive relationshipExpand

Variability and sexual dimorphism in canine size of Australopithecus and extant hominoids
Abstract Among extant hominoids degrees of sexual dimorphism and combined-sex coefficients of variation of canine teeth dimensions are highly correlated. Based on this relationship and coefficientsExpand

Analysis of maternal-fetal weight relationships in primates based on the regression equation F (fetal weight) = b · M (maternal weight)a indicates that prosimian and anthropoid primates are separatedExpand

Sexual Dimorphism in Primates
Secondary sexual differentiation in sexually reproducing organisms leads to more or less pronounced sexual dimorphism in an array of interrelated morphological, physiological, and behavioralExpand

Among primates sexual dimorphism in both body weight and canine size increases exponentially with increasing body size. This suggests that a full explanation of the variance in sexual dimorphism canExpand

Sexual dimorphism in the postcranial skeleton of New World primates.
This study examines sexual dimorphism in 24 dimensions of the postcranial skeleton of four platyrrhine species: Callithrix jacchus, Saguinus nigricollis, Saimiri sciureus, and Cebus albifrons. TheExpand

Newborn Size and Pelvic Dimensions of Australopithecus
IN mammals construction of the pelvis not only reflects functional adaptations to certain modes of locomotion but also depends on maternal-foetal size relationships. Therefore, information about bodyExpand
