      Although dental and cranial anatomy have generally received more attention in mammalian paleontology than has the postcranial skeleton, the skeleton is a critical source of information on body size, locomotion, habitat preference, and many other aspects of anial characters are also playing an increasingly significant role in phy-logenetic analyses, as it becomes .

The Primate Postcranial Skeleton by Elizabeth Strasser Download PDF EPUB FB2

The appendicular skeleton provides the solid framework for active powers that move the primate body, whereas the axial skeleton is the unifying component. The fourth unit of the postcranial skeleton, the muscular system, directly moves the passive skeleton.

We offer these skeletons in articulated or disarticulated versions, as well as partial skeletons, sets of postcranial parts, and individual bones of all of the skeletons we produce. Use of the “group” tab on the Skeleton pages will take you to a listing of the many postcranial parts available for that species.
