Ardipithecus kadabba : late Miocene evidence from the Middle Awash, Ethiopia( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 182 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
The postcranial anatomy of Australopithecus afarensis : new insights from KSD-VP-1/1 by Yohannes Haile-Selassie( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes a 3.6 million-years-old partial skeleton of Australopithecus afarensis from the Woranso-Mille, central Afar, Ethiopia. This specimen is the first adult partial skeleton to be recovered since Lucy?s (A.L. 288-1) discovery in 1974. It is older than Lucy by 400,000 years and sheds light on the paleobiology of earlyAustralopithecus afarensis, particularly the morphology of the shoulder girdle and thoracic shape, which are thus far poorly understood and actively debated. The fauna associated with the partial skeleton tells us enormously about Au. afarensis paleoecology and give us another piece of the puzzle regarding habitat availability and use for Au. afarensis outside the Hadar region where it has been well-known for the last four decades
Late Miocene mammalian fauna from the Middle Awash Valley, Ethiopia by Yohannes Haile-Selassie( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study presents a descriptive and comparative analysis of the late Miocene mammalian fauna from the Middle Awash, Ethiopia. The Middle Awash has yielded fossils spanning the last six million years. Although vertebrate fossils have been collected from the late Miocene sites along the western margin of the study area since the mid-1970s, none of these fossils was comprehensively studied until this work. The geology and geochronology of the late Miocene sites are now refined and a reliable chronostratigraphy has been established by 40Ar/39Ar radiometric dating. The Adu-Asa Formation is divided into four members distinguished from each other by marker horizons, most of which are dated basaltic tuffs. Radiometric dating has confined the age of the Adu-Asa Formation to between 5.2--5.8 Ma. These dates are also supported by paleomagnetic results
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 2 WorldCat member libraries 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
