A preliminary analysis of the dental and cranial morphology of presbytis and trachypithecus in relation to diet
The object of this exercise is to examine the variation in two widespread groups of Asian colobine, or leaf eating monkey. I will deal primarily with dental variation, and, to a lesser extent, the relation of these dental features, to. the cranium as a whole. To the extent that each suite of dental characteristics may be related to the. ecological setting of the animals in question, I will attempt to extrapolate from dentition to foraging habit. The systematics of Asian colobines is a massive,...[Show more]
