Ectocranial suture closure in Pan troglodytes and Gorilla gorilla: pattern and phylogeny.

Abstract

The order in which ectocranial sutures undergo fusion displays species-specific variation among primates. However, the precise relationship between suture closure and phylogenetic affinities is poorly understood. In this study, we used Guttman Scaling to determine if the modal progression of suture closure differs among Homo sapiens, Pan troglodytes, and… (More)
