Hello all,
My name is Matthew Joanis and I am a PhD track anthroplogy major at St.
Lawrence University. I am curently researching the origins and develop-
ment of Miocene ape brachiation and its implications for human evolution
I have just obtained a copy of the Moya-Sola and Kohler article in the
January '96 edition of Nature on a Dryopithecine skeleton and origins of
great ape locomotion. I have plenty of resources to write the paper what
I am looking for is some thoughts and opinions on the subject from
any physical anthropologists out there to possibly include in my paper.
I would appreciate any help. If anyone does reply could you please
include your name, dept title or position, and the name of your
university/college etc. Thank you very much for your time.
