This allometric investigation on a sample of 29 cercopithecine and 22 colobine taxa augments the data and implications of prior work on subfamilial variation in mandibular form and function in recent Cercopithecidae. To increase the size range encompassed by living cercopithecines and colobines, I included many of the larger-bodied fossil specimens. These analyses serve to fill a gap in our understanding of size-related changes in masticatory function and symphyseal morphology and curvature in… CONTINUE READING
