Karger, Primate - Primate - Oligocene: Information on primate evolution during the Oligocene Epoch ( million to 23 million years ago) rests principally on discoveries in two areas—Texas and Egypt.

The earliest platyrrhine fossils were found in South America and are only about 25 million years old, so much remains to be learned about their earliest evolutionary history.

This list may not reflect recent changes (). The research on Fayum primates in this period was greatly expanded, as is explained in this paper, because: 1) new tech-niques enabled the recovery of extensive collections of postcranial elements as well as skulls and facial crania, which made possible revisions of both anatomy of the propliopithecids and parapithecids; 2) an international in.

Afrotarsius chatrathi is from the Oligocene Fayum of Egypt, and another species has been described from the Eocene of Libya (Jaeger et al., ). Because this genus is known only from limited dental material, it has been debated whether Afrotarsius is more closely related to the living Tarsius, to the European microchoerids, or to early anthropoids, all of which it resembles to some degree.

Anthropoid fossils first appear in the Oligocene epoch ( mya) in both the Old and New World- climate cooled at this time, expansion of grasslands and reduction of forests occurred Climate change resulted in southward movement of primate populations Very little evidence for further evolution in Europe or North America.

The Oligocene (33–23 mya) has yielded numerous additional fossil remains of sev-eral different species of early anthropoids. Most of these forms are Old World anthropoids, all discovered at a single locality in Egypt, the Fayum (Fig.

These changes include the appearance of the first elephants with trunks, early. In preparation for today’s Nature paper on Dmanisi, yesterday I went over some of the hot Homo fossils that have come from Dmanisi.

One afternoon, while at an anthropology conference, Simons asked if he could use an.Lemurs, primates belonging to the suborder Strepsirrhini which branched off from other primates less than 63 mya (million years ago), evolved on the island of Madagascar, for at least 40 million share some traits with the most basal primates, and thus are often confused as being ancestral to modern monkeys, apes, and humans.

Instead, they merely resemble ancestral primates.
