Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Gibbons and Siamangs (Hylobates)

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor, Félix J. de Paz, Eva M. Ferrero, Gaëlle Bello, Mercedes Barbosa, Mohammed Ashraf Aziz, Julia Arias-Martorell, Bernard A. Wood

This book is the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of Hylobates, and adopts the same format as the photographic atlas of Gorilla published by the same authors in 2010. These two books are part of a series of monographs that will set out the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary history of the soft tissue morphology of modern humans and their closest relatives. This atlas, which includes detailed high-quality photographs of musculoskeletal structures from most anatomical regions of the body as well as textual information about the attachments, innervation and weight of the respective muscles, is based on dissections and on an extensive review of the literature.

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Orangutans

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor, Félix J. de Paz, Eva M. Ferrero, Gaëlle Bello, Mercedes Barbosa, Mohammed Ashraf Aziz, Julia Arias-Martorell, Bernard A. Wood

Orangutans, together with chimpanzees and gorillas, are our closest living relatives. Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Orangutans, the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the genus Pongo, adopts the same format as the photographic atlases of Gorilla, Pan and Hylobates previously published by the same authors. These four books are part of a series of monographs that will set out the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary history of the soft tissue morphology of modern humans and their closest relatives.

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Bonobos

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor, Félix J. de Paz,Julia Arias-Martorell, Cassandra Turcotte, Ashly Hammmond, E. Vereecke, M. Vanhoof, S. Nauwelaerts, Bernard A. Wood

This book, which is the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of bonobos (Pan paniscus), adopts the same format as the photographic atlases of other apes previously published by the same authors. These books are part of a series of monographs that will set out the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary history of the soft tissue morphology of modern humans and their closest relatives. The present atlas, which includes detailed high quality photographs of the musculoskeletal structures from most anatomical regions of the body as well as textual information about the attachments, innervation, function and weight of the respective muscles, is based on dissections of seven bonobos, including adults, adolescents, infants and fetuses, and males and females, and on an extensive review of the literature for comparisons with common chimpanzees.

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Chimpanzees

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor, Félix J. de Paz, Eva M. Ferrero, Gaëlle Bello, Mercedes Barbosa, Mohammed Ashraf Aziz, Anne M. Burrows, Julia Arias-Martorell, Bernard A. Wood

Chimpanzees, including common chimpanzees and bonobos, are our closest living relatives. This book, which is the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the genus Pan, adopts the same format as the photographic atlases of Gorilla and Hylobates previously published by the same authors. These three books are part of a series of monographs that will set out the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary history of the soft tissue morphology of modern humans and their closest relatives.

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Gorilla

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor, Félix J. de Paz, Eva M. Ferrero, Gaëlle Bello, Mercedes Barbosa, Bernard A. Wood

Even though the gorilla is our closest living relative, information about its anatomy, and particularly its musculature, is scarce. This book is the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the gorilla. It includes high-quality photographs of musculoskeletal structures from most anatomical regions of the body, along with textual information about the attachments, innervations, and weight of the reported muscles. The atlas is an up-to-date review of the anatomical variations within gorillas as well as an extensive list of the synonyms used in the literature to designate the structures covered in the book. It also contains dissection observations of other primates and vertebrates, which are crucial for examining and understanding the homologies between the muscular structures of gorillas, humans, and other taxa.

Baby Gorilla: Photographic and Descriptive Atlas of the Skeleton, Muscles and Internal Organs

Rui Diogo, Juan F. Pastor, Adam Hartstone-Rose, Magdalena N. Muchlinski

The first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of a baby gorilla, this book details the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary history of the soft tissue morphology of modern humans and one of their closest relatives. With detailed high-quality photographs of musculoskeletal structures, it provides an updated review of the anatomical variations within gorillas as well as an extensive list of the synonyms used in the literature to designate the structures discussed. It will be of interest to students, teachers, and researchers studying primatology, comparative anatomy, functional morphology, zoology, and physical anthropology.
