The dentition of the Australopithecinae. By John T. Robinson. Transvaal Museum Memoir No. 9, pp. Transvaal Museum, Pretoria, South Africa, Cited by: 1. The curious distribution of Australopithecinae on both sides of the Indian Ocean suggests that the transition from Ramapithecus to (a still unknown) Australopithecus also took place in the same region prior to their migration into Africa and Southeast by: The endocranial capacities of the Australopithecinae Article in Journal of Zoology (4) - August with 6 Reads How we measure 'reads'. In brief there is no feature external or internal in the dentition of Australopithecus, that can be termed simian. We are led, by our detailed study of the dentition to an unqualified support of the deductions that are to be drawn from the study of the bone breccia at by:

Australopithecines or Hominina are generally Australopithecus, and it typically includes the earlier Ardipithecus, Orrorin, Sahelanthropus, and Graecopithecus. All these related species are now sometimes collectively classified as a subtribe of the Hominini tribe called Australopithecina. They are the extinct, close relatives of humans and, with the extant genus Homo, comprise the human clade. Class: Mammalia. Retraction of the palate from a position in front of the face to under it. Forward shift of the zygomatic processes of the maxilla, the zygomatic bone, and the front of the masseter muscle, creating the zygomatic prominence. Dentition pertains to the development of teeth and their arrangement in the particular, it is the characteristic arrangement, kind, and number of teeth in a given species at a given age. That is, the number, type, and morpho-physiology (that is, the relationship between the shape and form of the tooth in question and its inferred function) of the teeth of an animal. Australopithecus (/ ˌ ɒ s t r ə l ə ˈ p ɪ θ ɪ k ə s,-l oʊ-/ OS-trə-lə-PITH-i-kəs, -⁠loh-; from Latin australis, meaning 'southern', and Greek πίθηκος (pithekos), meaning 'ape'; singular: australopith) is a genus of hominins that existed in Africa from around to million years ago and from which the Homo genus, including modern humans, is considered to be : Mammalia.

Part of the Advances in Primatology book series (AIPR) In Dart proposed that his newly named genus Australopithecus was the ancestor of the genus Homo (Dart, ). Despite a recent rash of claims to the contrary based on misidentified fossils or erroneous dates (R.
