This paper analyzes the palaeoenvironment of the Late Miocene large hominoid, Samburupithecus kiptalami by using the mammalian faunal assemblages. It is based on the mammal fauna found at the hominoid sites, using the habitat preferences of extant mammals, the probable feeding preferences based on morphology of the teeth, the footprint fauna and the relative abundance of each mammal taxon. The habitat preferences of extant mammals and the probable feeding preferences in relative abundances of… CONTINUE READING
