Estimating Genetic Similarity Matrices Using Phylogenies

This work provides a new method for computing genetic similarities among individuals using phylogenetic trees and shows that the genetic similarity matrices computed from trees are consistent with those computed from genotypes.



Latest Homo erectus of Java: Potential Contemporaneity with Homo sapiens in Southeast Asia

Electron spin resonance (ESR) and mass spectrometric U-series dating of fossil bovid teeth collected from the hominid-bearing levels at these sites gave mean ages of 27 ± 2 to 53.3 ± 4 thousand years ago; the range in ages reflects uncertainties in uranium migration histories.

Early Pleistocene 40Ar/39Ar ages for Bapang Formation hominins, Central Jawa, Indonesia

This work investigates the sedimentary framework and hornblende 40Ar/39Ar age for volcanic deposits in the southeast quadrant of the Sangiran dome, and identifies a sequence of sedimentary cycles in which H. erectus fossils are associated with epiclastic pumice.

Homo erectus at Trinil on Java used shells for tool production and engraving

A fossil freshwater shell assemblage from the Hauptknochenschicht of Trinil (Java, Indonesia) is reported, indicating that the engraving was made by Homo erectus, and that it is considerably older than the oldest geometric engravings described so far.
