Ardipithecus kadabba late Miocene evidence from the Middle Awash, Ethiopia by Yohannes Haile-Selassie ( )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second volume in a series dedicated to fossil discoveries made in the Afar region of Ethiopia, this work contains the definitive description of the geological context and paleoenvironment of the early hominid Ardipithecus kadabba. This research by an international team describes Middle Awash late Miocene faunal assemblages recovered from sediments firmly dated to between 5.2 and 5.8 million years ago. Compared to other assemblages of similar age, the Middle Awash record is unparalleled in taxonomic diversity, composed of 2,760 specimens representing at least sixty five mammalian genera. Th

Anatomy of the australopithecus scapula and evolution of the human shoulder insights from a new fossil specimen, KSD-VP-1/1g by Stephanie Marie Melillo ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Striding bipedalism is a mode of locomotion that defines our lineage. Bipedality freed the hands, arms and shoulders from the mechanical constraints of locomotion, an evolutionary innovation that has had an obvious impact on our species' fitness. As I will discuss in this dissertation, the shoulder blade (scapula) is shaped to optimize use of the upper limb in certain positions. Our closest living relatives (chimpanzees and gorillas) possess adaptations that likely increase efficiency in overhead use of the arms, as in forearm suspension or vertical climbing. The modern human shoulder, on the other hand, lacks such adaptations. This difference may reflect an evolutionary change in shape that occurred as our ancestors transitioned to a terrestrial way of life and became increasingly dexterous, eventually losing ancestral adaptations. On the other hand, recent discoveries suggest our lineage may have never possessed adaptations to suspension. Fossils from the shoulder of our early human ancestors are scarce. A recently discovered partial skeleton from Woranso-Mille (Afar Depression, Ethiopia), KSD-VP-1/1, preserves the oldest and most complete scapula of an adult Australopithecus afarensis individual. The intended contribution of this dissertation is to provide a comparative description of the new scapula (KSD-VP-1/1g) and to detail its implications for our understanding of anatomy and adaptation in the Australopithecus shoulder, and the evolutionary history of the modern human shoulder more generally
