Primate fossils and primate evolutionary pathways

PART A: identifying Primate Fossils 1. Classify the following sample primate fossils below as: Adapoid, Omomyoid, New World Monkey, Old World Monkey, Hominoid (Ape-like), Hominid. This is a “hypothetical fossil” and not a fossil already mentioned in your text. 2. Could this hypothetical fossil represent any type of possible transitional fossil? Explain your answer. A. A quadrupedal fossil found in Montana about the size of hamster with a 2143 dentition pattern B. A bipedal fossil found in Africa with a Y-5 cusp pattern. C. A quadrupedal fossil found in Asia with no tail and a 2123 dentition pattern. D. A quadrupedal fossil found in Northern Africa with a 2133 dentition pattern. E. A quadrupedal fossil with 1133 dentition found in Europe PART B: Diagraming Fossil Primates (Use similar methods to last weeks diagrams to submit) Choose EITHER the Traditional Tree and the Cladogram to illustrate the evolutionary pathway of non-human primate fossils. Please include the following in your diagram: 1. Adapids 2. Omomyids 3. Aegyptopithecus 4. Apidium 5. Victoriapithecus 6. Branisella 7. Saadanius 8. Proconsul 9. Sivapithecus 8. Ouranopithecus 9. Modern Lemurs (Give Example) 10 Modern Tarsiers (Give Example) 11. Modern New World Monkeys (Give Example) 12 Modern Old world Monkeys (Give Example) 13. Modern Orangutans 14. Modern Chimpanzees 15. Modern Gorillas * If you are creating a traditional tree remember to include the time periods in your diagram. * If you are creating a cladogram remember to include identifying characteristics of your sister groups (such as dentition or locomotion). Please cite at least 3 references or sources in APA format at the bottom of the page.
