The African ape-like foot of Ardipithecus ramidus and its implications for the origin of bipedalism

The ancestral condition from which humans evolved is critical for understanding the adaptive origin of bipedal locomotion. The 4.4 million-year-old hominin partial skeleton attributed to Ardipithecus

Evidence of a chimpanzee-sized ancestor of humans but a gibbon-sized ancestor of apes

Comparative phylogenetic analysis is used to reconstruct the likely size of the ancestor of humans and chimpanzees and the evolutionary history of selection on body size in primates, suggesting that a series of selective regime shifts led to a decrease and then increase in body mass in early hominins from a chimpanzee-sized LCA.

Standing on the shoulders of apes: Analyzing the form and function of the hominoid scapula using geometric morphometrics and finite element analysis.

A combined approach using geometric morphometrics and finite element analysis was able to cast some light regarding the functional and phylogenetic contributions in hominoid scapular morphology, thus contributing to a better insight of the association betweenScapular form and function.

Linear and Angular Measurements of the Foot of Modern Humans: A Test of Morton'S Foot Types

This study aims to document the variation in linear and angular measurements of the foot, using weight‐bearing radiographs of 50 randomly selected people from an urban US Level 1 trauma center and found that foot length was not correlated with angular measurements, except for the angle between the first and fifth metatarsal.
