Hominin geographical range dynamics and relative brain size: Do non-human primates provide a good analogy?

Abstract

We use climatic and satellite remote sensing data to characterize environmental seasonality in the geographical ranges of extant non-human primates in order to assess the effect of relative brain size on tolerance of more seasonal habitats. Demonstration of such an effect in living non-human primates could provide a comparative framework for modeling… (More)
