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]
TLDR
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. Expand
A Regression Analysis of Australopithecine Dentition
TLDR
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 andExpand
