When we had the good fortune to study the Klasies River Mouth Cave remains at the South African Museum in 1989, the isolated partial zygomatic KRM 16651 presented us with a morphometric challenge. The face of the bone appeared quite large, but only a small portion of the inferior border was preserved, and that mostly under the temporal process. No measuring points allowed standard comparisons to be made for the size of the zygomatic face. However, comparing it with other more complete specimens… Expand

A note on the KNM-ER 999 hominid femur
Abstract The KNM-ER 999 hominid femur, in light of improved knowledge of later Pleistocene human postcranial morphology and ongoing reassessments of the emergence of modern humans in Africa, appearsExpand
Antiquity of Homo sapiens in China
The morphology of the skull suggests a strong local component of evolution, consonant with the 'multi-regional continuity' model of the evolution of H. sapiens, and raises the possibility of the coexistence of the two species in China. Expand
Craniofacial evidence for the origin of modern humans in China
An alternative chronophenetic assessment of the fossil Asians does not support a Replacement Model, but instead supports a variant of the Regional Continuity Model, an Assimilation Model, as the most parsimonious means of understanding the origins of modern humans in China and other parts of the Old World.

A careful examination of the pertinent record shows that claims for the presence of anatomically modern humans in Africa prior to 100 ka and for the transition leading to modern Africans at an even earlier date are not unequivocally supported by the available fossil and chronological evidence.

The human career : human biological and cultural origins
