Comparative anatomy and phylogeny of primate muscles and human evolution

Author: Rui Diogo; Bernard A Wood
Publisher: Boca Raton : CRC Press, 2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
The combined anatomical materials provided in this book point out that modern humans have fewer head, neck, pectoral and upper limb muscles than most other living primates, but are consistent with the proposal that facial and vocal communication and specialized thumb movements have probably played an important role in recent human evolution. This book will be of interest to primatologists, comparative anatomists,  Read more...
