Previous hypotheses of maxillary sinus size evolution have proposed one or more changes in the volume of the structure across hominoid phylogeny. These hypotheses have been used subsequently to support the phylogenetic placement of fossil taxa relative to the living Hominoidea. The null hypothesis, that no change in sinus volume independent of size has occurred in ape evolution, is evaluated here by scaling analysis. Mixed sex samples of adult dry crania for the extant ape genera were examined… CONTINUE READING
