The Evolutionary History of the Australopiths

TLDR
The australopiths were diverse, geographically widespread, and anatomically derived, they lived through periods of pronounced climate change, and their story dominates the narrative of human evolution for millions of years.
Human evolution: taxonomy and paleobiology
TLDR
This review begins by setting out the context and the scope of human evolution, and sets out the formal nomenclature, history of discovery, and information about the characteristic morphology, and its behavioural implications, of the species presently included in the human clade.
Dietary Adaptations and Intra- and Interspecific Variation in Dental Occlusal Shape in Hominin and Non-hominin Primates
TLDR
The occlusal surface shape variability in anterior and postcanine maxillary dentition in primates is measured to assess whether the relationship between diet and variability is consistent, and how diet might influence the pattern of variability in closely related species.

TLDR
The Woranso-Mille hominids show that there is no compelling evidence to falsify the hypothesis of ‘chronospecies pair’ or ancestor–descendant relationship between Au.
Miocene hominoid biogeography: pulses of dispersal and differentiation
Aim  To test the hypothesis that the ancestor of the hominines (African apes and humans) had an African origin by comparing the historical biogeographical patterns of hominoids with those of two
The Macroevolution of our Ancient Lineage: What We Know (or Think We Know) about Early Hominin Diversity
TLDR
It is argued that for many species the authors' limited understanding of within species variation hampers the ability to make taxonomic decisions with any level of statistical certainty.
