This publication demanding situations the idea that morphological information are inherently wrong for phylogeny reconstruction, argues that either molecular and morphological phylogenies may still play a big position in systematics, and offers the main entire assessment of the comparative anatomy, homologies and evolution of the top, neck, pectoral and higher limb muscle tissues of primates.

Chapters 1 and a couple of offer an creation to the most goals and technique of the book.

Chapters three and four and Appendices I and II current the information got from dissections of the pinnacle, neck, pectoral and higher limb muscle mass of consultant individuals of the entire significant primate teams together with sleek people, and evaluate those information with the knowledge on hand within the literature.

Appendices I and II offer distinct textual (attachments, innervation, functionality, diversifications and synonyms) and visible (high caliber pictures) information regarding each one muscle for the primate taxa incorporated within the cladistic learn of bankruptcy three, hence offering the 1st entire and recent review of the comparative anatomy of the top, neck, pectoral and higher limb muscle tissues of primates.

The such a lot parsimonious tree got from the cladistic research of 166 head, neck, pectoral and top limb muscle characters in 18 primate genera, and in representatives of the Scandentia, Dermoptera and Rodentia, is totally congruent with the evolutionary molecular tree of Primates, therefore assisting the concept that muscle characters are really beneficial to deduce phylogenies.

The mixed anatomical fabrics supplied during this ebook indicate that smooth people have fewer head, neck, pectoral and top limb muscle tissues than such a lot different residing primates, yet are in keeping with the suggestion that facial and vocal conversation and really good thumb routine have most likely performed a major position in fresh human evolution.

This booklet can be of curiosity to primatologists, comparative anatomists, useful morphologists, zoologists, actual anthropologists, and systematicians, in addition to to scientific scholars, physicians and researchers drawn to figuring out the foundation, evolution, homology and adaptations of the muscular tissues of contemporary humans.

Contains 132 colour plates.
