    The Evolution of Primate Locomotion and Body Configuration. Changes in body structure and locomotion are the most significant parts in the process of Primate Evolution. Evolution helps animals to adapt to their ever changing environment and take advantage of new resources and challenges arising with the changing environment. Primate Locomotion. Humans are the only primate that is habitually bipedal, but primates have a tendency towards vertical orientation. The small clingers and leapers hang upright on the trunk, the brachiators hang vertically from their arms, many prosimians jump bipedally, most apes go on two feet for a more dramatic display.

    The study of primate locomotion is a unique discipline that by its nature is interdis­ ciplinary, drawing on and integrating research from ethology, ecology, comparative anat­ omy, physiology, biomechanics, paleontology, etc. When combined and Price: $ Included in this book are discussions of: • Phylogeny• Adaptation• Body size• The wet- and dry-nosed primates• Bone biology• Musculoskeletal mechanics• Strepsirhine and haplorhine heads• Primate teeth and diets• Necks, backs, and tails• The pelvis and reproduction• Locomotion• Forelimbs and hindlimbs• Hands and feet.

    In terms of primate locomotion, expressed forms of locomotion include various forms of quadrupedalism, tripedalism, vertical climbing, leaping, tail swinging, suspensory, and bipedalism, as discussed in John Fleagle's book Primate Adaptation and Evolution (see also Hunt et al., ). Bipedalism is a remarkable form of locomotion. Though. tion (premolars and molars). Paleoanthropologists use the dental formula to describe the number of each kind of tooth in one half of the maxilla and mandible of a species. Why only one half? Because primate morphology is the same on the left and right sides. For example, the dental formula for modern humans in /, which.

Primate Locomotion discusses researches on the concept of primate locomotion. It is organized into 11 chapters that cover biomechanical principles, which are the foundation of understanding of locomotor adaptations.

This book first gives an introduction to parallels and analogs between mammalian and mechanical structures. The conference, Primate Locomotion, took place thirty years after the pioneering confer­ ence on the same topic that was convened by the late Warren G. Kinzey at Davis in Keywords animals anthropology behavior biomechanics ecology ethology evolution morphology physiology primates.

A DEFINITIONAL SYSTEM FOR THE CLASSIFICATION OF PRIMATE LOCOMOTION by Prost, J.H. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Keywords: evolutionary modification, primate evolution The Evolution Of Primate Locomotion and Body Configuration.

Humans, who have long since abandoned the trees as their principal lodging place, have only partially lost the physical adaptations for tree climbing; their hands, in particular, remain in the arboreal mold.

Primate locomotion has typically been studied from two points of view. Laboratory-based researchers have focused on aspects like biomechanics and energetics, whereas field-based researchers have focused on (locomotor) behaviour and ecology.
