Ramapithecus wickeri Mandible from Fort Ternan, Kenya
TLDR
A detailed examination of occlusal relationships between the upper teeth in the maxilla of R. wickeri (KNM–FT 46)† and the two premolars in KNM-FT 45 suggests that the two specimens belong to the same individual; and even if this is not so they definitely belong toThe same species.
Maxillofacial Morphology of Miocene Hominoids from Africa and Indo-Pakistan
The contact of the Afro-Arabian Plate with Eurasia around 17 million years ago (m.y.a.) is associated with profound changes in Miocene faunal communities. At or about this time, a hominoid appeared
Ramapithecus and Sivapithecus from China: Some implications for higher primate evolution
TLDR
The pattern of overall dental dimensions in over 900 teeth of ramapithecines from Lufeng in China is examined using frequency distribution histograms and fitted normal curves, and compared with data for extant hominoids, demonstrating that both these forms differ from modern apes in their sexual dimorphism.
Miocene Hominoid Primate Dental Remains from the Siwaliks of Pakistan

Two regions of the Old World show a thick, uninterrupted series of Miocene freshwater sediments with rich, successive mammalian faunas: the Upper Freshwater Molasse (Obere Susswasser-Molasse) of
Miocene Hominoid Discoveries from Rudabánya
Recent discoveries and new interpretations of hominoids living 8–14 million years ago (m.y.a.), including species from several geographical regions, have generated interest in reevaluating the nature
The unravelled LB1 (Homo floresiensis) riddle? Some critical comments on the morphology of LB1
TLDR
The unrivalled combination of morphological features of the LB1 specimen of Flores that are described in the literature and discussed at special workshops has given rise to several publications, and awakened interest in examining the variability of special morphological Features of the genus Pongo.
The Nut-Crackers - A New Theory of the Adaptations of the Ramapithecinae
TLDR
Members of the Ramapithecinae, the stock which probably gave rise to Pliocene-Recent hominids, had very thick molar enamel, which suggests that they ate hard seeds, nuts, and fruits previously available only to arboreal rodents and forest-floor pigs.
Functional morphology and *evolution of the adapiform dentition, with particular emphasis on the Asian Sivaladapidae
TLDR
This study utilizes two-dimensional geometric morphometric techniques to address molar shape variation in extinct and extant prosimians using the relative orientation of selected homologous molar landmarks, and suggests that frugivores (and gramnivores) generally exhibit a relatively wide anterior talonid basin and little trigonid torsion.
The relation of canine size to pattern and extent of attrition in baboons
TLDR
It is proposed that the correlation of incisor and lingual molar cusp attrition is associated with anterior-posterior grinding movements, such as take place during incision, that the large canine present in the male limits such movements, the sharp blade-like canine being employed as a cutting tool.
