Paleobiological and Phylogenetic Significance of Life History in Miocene Hominoids

  • Jay Kelley
Part of the Advances in Primatology book series (AIPR)


Features by which extant hominoids are distinguishable from cercopithecoids can be readily identified. Anyone schooled in primate biology could generate a comprehensive list of these features; a less comprehensive although still generally accurate list could probably be generated by any observant individual. From such a list it would not be too difficult to come up with a short characterization of hominoids that unified the various features into a few more generalized traits, abilities, and so forth. I suspect there would be sufficient conformity in these characterizations such that there would be few disagreements as to how to define a hominoid. It is surely the case, however, that character lists would become shorter and the entire exercise more challenging the further back one went into the hominoid record.
