Structural analysis of premolar roots in Middle Pleistocene hominins from China.
- Geography, Environmental ScienceJournal of human evolution
Comparative observations on the premolar root and pulp canal configurations of Middle Pleistocene Homo in China.
- Environmental ScienceAmerican journal of physical anthropology
The mid-Middle Pleistocene populations, or "classic" Homo erectus, in this study show closer affinity to Early and Middle Pleistsocene hominins in Eurasia, than to East African early Homo, which supports the suggestion that at least some of the Early Pleistolithic hominin groups in EurasIA contribute to the later population.
Morphology and structure of Homo erectus humeri from Zhoukoudian, Locality 1
- Environmental SciencePeerJ
This study reports the first humeral rigidity and strength properties of East Asian H. erectus and places its diaphyseal robusticity into broader regional and temporal contexts, indicating that regional variability in humeral midshaft robusticity may characterize H. erection to a greater extent than presently recognized.

Micro-CT Imaging and Analysis of Enamel Defects on the Early Late Pleistocene Xujiayao Juvenile
- Medicine, Environmental Science
The authors' SEM and micro-CT analyses suggest that the large pit on the I1 is an enamel hypoplasia due to its morphology and pre-eruptive enamel thinning, and there is no evidence of chalkiness or opacity associated with dental fluorosis.
Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences from two Denisovan individuals
- BiologyProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
The number of Denisovan individuals known to three is extended to three, with the nuclear DNA sequence diversity among the three Denisovans is comparable to that among six Neandertals, but lower than that among present-day humans.
Occurrence of neanderthal features in mandibles from the Atapuerca-SH site.
- BiologyAmerican journal of physical anthropology
The hypothesis that two distinct and consecutive morphological processes have driven the emergence of the European lineage throughout the Middle Pleistocene is proposed.
The ATD6-5 mandibular specimen from Gran Dolina (Atapuerca, Spain). Morphological study and phylogenetic implications.
- GeographyJournal of human evolution
The morphology of ATD6-5 supports the hypothesis of an African origin for the first Europeans with subsequent phylogenetic continuity with Middle Pleistocene populations in Europe and is consistent with H. antecessor being the last common ancestor of Neandertals and H. sapiens.
