The Early Hominid Plant-Food Niche: Insights From an Analysis of Plant Exploitation by Homo, Pan, and Papio in Eastern and Southern Africa [and Comments and Reply]

Six plant genera (four providing edible fruits) are the first genera to be identified as members of the most probable early-hominid fundamental plant-food niche.

A Regression Analysis of Australopithecine Dentition

The posterior dentition of the robust group appears to signifi­ cantly increase in size through time whereas the gracile and "Homo" groups show a decrease in the anterior dental dimensions when analyzed separately, and exhibit a decreases in posterior tooth size when a combined analysis is performed.

Reconstructing Landscape Use Patterns Using Strontium Isotope Ratios

Strontium isotope ratios derive from the age and composition of the bedrock underlying an area and are incorporated without detectable fractionation into calciumbearing tissues (such as bone and

Although best known for its fossil hominins, the Omo‐Turkana Basin of Kenya and Ethiopia is the source of one of the best records of vertebrate evolution from the Late Cenozoic of Africa. Located

Food Transport and the Origin of Hominid Bipedalism1

B bipedalism was the basic adaptation for the foundation of the human radiation, starting man on "his separate evolutionary path" (1959:31), though tool-using may have been almost as early (1960a) or simultaneous (Washburn and Howell 1960:3537, 47).

The Relevance of Carnivore Behavior to the Study of Early Hominids

Attempts have been made to deduce the social life of early hominids by means of the comparative study of non-human primates. But since social systems are strongly influenced by ecological conditions,

An Attempt to Reconstruct the Behaviour of Australopithecines: The Evidence for Interpersonal Violence

The question of the incidence of inter-personal violence in this group must remain an open one because ante-mortem damage to specimens has not been isolated conclusively from post-tossilisation ettects.

TRAVERTINES AND CAVE DEPOSITS OF THE KAAP ESCARPMENT OF SOUTH AFRICA, AND THE TYPE LOCALITY OF AUSTRALOPITHECUS AFRICANUS DART

The surface travertines, included cave deposits, and other associated phenomena along the Kaap escarpment (Campbell Rand) of the Union of South Africa are mapped and described with emphasis on

Geological framework of the Pliocene Hadar Formation (Afar, Ethiopia) with notes on paleontology including hominids

Although detailed studies in the central Afar, in particular Hadar, have only recently begun, we feel that it is possible to present a provisional resumé of our research. The Pliocene deposits of

The contribution of Namib desert Hottentots to an understanding of australopithecine bone accumulations

It is appropriate that a collection of papers published in honour of Dr. V. FitzSimons should include one with a bearing on the South African fossil ape-men or australopithecines. During Dr.
