I hope this revived thread on anatomical sequelae of selection for
bipedalism and gravity gets some serious attention as Gerritt wonders. We
are not talking fat and sweat here, but muscle-bone relationships that
have some chance of verifying predictions when fossils are discovered,
and which underline the large-scale differences that would be expected
for an aquatic adaptation as opposed to a terrestrial one. Ralph Holloway.
