The Temporal Effect in hominids : Reinvestigating the nature of support for a chimp-human clade in bone morphology

Pearson, Alannah; Groves, Colin; Cardini, Andrea


In 2004, an analysis by Lockwood and colleagues of hard-tissue morphology, using geometric morphometrics on the temporal bone, succeeded in recovering the correct hylogeny of living hominids without resorting to potentially problematic methods for transforming continuous shape variables into meristic characters. That work has increased hope that by using modern analytical methods and phylogenetically informative anatomical data we might one day be able to accurately infer the...[Show more]
