    A. primates "A" and "B" are more closely related to each other than either is to primate "C". B. all three primates appeared on Earth at about the same time C. either primate "A" or primate "B" must be a direct ancestor of primate "C". D. primate "C" must have been the ancestor of both primate "A" and "B". The complex idea of species has evolved over time, yet its meaning is far from resolved. This comprehensive work takes a fresh look at an idea central to the field of biology by tracing its history from antiquity to today. John S. Wilkins explores the essentialist view, a staple of logic from Plato and Aristotle through the Middle Ages to fairly recent times, and considers the idea of species.

The family Cheirogaleidae is arguably the most interesting group of primates alive today. Within this single clade, hypothesized to have originated approximately 25–30 Mya, we find the world's smallest living primate (genus Microcebus), one species that went “missing” for more than three decades (genus Allocebus), the only known obligate hibernator within the primates.

Species change over time; they evolve into other species by means of natural selection. Paleoanthropologists rely on which of the following species concepts to recognize species in the fossil record?

And primate evolution book revealed a 10‐fold higher species diversity, with 21 currently described species. 4, 5 Are these new species, mostly defined based on the phylogenetic species concept (sensu Cracraft 6), or independent evolutionary lineages or, perhaps, only artifacts of taxonomic inflation.

7 What is a species. How can we identify primate species. Wallace, ) even before his famous book On the origin of species. Progress toward a general species concept. Evolut – Why and How of Primate Taxonomy. Each species of living primates represents an endpoint in evolution, but comparative neurologists can produce approximate evolutionary se quences by careful analyses of representative series.

Because nervous tissue does not fossilize, only a comparison of structures and functions among extant primates can be used to investigate the fine details.

With the debate still storming in the sciences as to what exactly constitutes a species, any discussion of the evolution of species stands on shaky ground. This collection of contributed papers attempts to solidify the definition of a species and, within the context of that definition, explore and describe primate evolution using fossil records and other data.

Evolution of Primates. The first primate-like mammals are referred to as proto-primates. They were roughly similar to squirrels and tree shrews in size and appearance.

The existing fossil evidence (mostly from North Africa) is very fragmented. These proto-primates remain largely mysterious creatures until more fossil evidence becomes available. Abstract: In order to meld the facts of organic diversity with the continuity of the evolutionary process, this volume details the diversity of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches currently employed by primate evolutionary biologists and paleontologists.

Specific coverage includes: species concepts and their role in evolutionary theory, the speciation process and the biology of species differences among living primates, and the problems of species.

Masters. Kimbel, W. Species, species concepts and hominid evolution. A Theory of Human and Primate Evolution. By Colin Groves (). New York: Oxford University Press. xii+ pp. $ Inin writing a book called A Theory of Human and Primate Evolution, I had been happy to take the Biological Species Concept (BSC) as something to be assumed, although I was somewhat uneasy in dealing with allopatric “subspecies”, and at applying the concept of species in the fossil record.

But during the s, I read further into. Species, species concepts, and primate evolution. [William H Kimbel; Lawrence Martin;] -- In order to meld the facts of organic diversity with the continuity of the evolutionary process, this volume details the diversity of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches currently.

Finally, Primate Taxonomy has appeared- before this, I had heard references to it at primatological gatherings.

Colin Groves needs no introduction in the area of taxonomy of many non-primate species, most recently, in resolving the question whether the African bush elephant is a subspecies, or a species in its own right (the latter).Reviews: 2.1.
