The validity of morphological features and osteological markers in reconstructing habitual activities
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Bony morphological features have been used to reflect biomechanical behavioral patterns among archaeological populations. Of most recent ones is the anterior femoral curvature (AFC). It has been proposed as a valid indicator ...

Detecting subtle variation in two cryptic primate families (tarsiidae & lorisidae) through morphology and genetics
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
Cryptic species look morphologically similar but in fact are several different species lumped together. This is problematic as it hinders conservation efforts and makes it challenging to infer the evolutionary history of ...
Middle and late woodland period cultural transmission, residential mobility, and aggregation in the deep South
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
This research attempts to reconstruct the extent of prehistoric human interaction within the lower Chattahoochee-Apalachicola River valley and neighboring Gulf Coast for the period spanning 200 B.C. to A.D. 1000. Using ...
