  • Although consistently absent in extant catarrhine monkeys, the presence and absence of the entepicondylar foramen of the humerus (EEF) vary greatly among living and fossil platyrrhines. Aiming to test the mode of evolution of this character in platyrrhine phylogeny, we performed stochastic character mapping of the presence and absence of the EEF based on museum material and literature research. We also tested for phylogenetic signal of the EEF and its correlation with semi-brachation, vertical… CONTINUE READING
