Shorter distal forelimbs benefit bipedal walking and running mechanics: implications for hominin forelimb evolution

Andrew Yegian, Yanish Tucker, Stephen Gillinov & Daniel Lieberman
This file provides the data from the manuscript "Shorter distal forelimbs benefit bipedal walking and running mechanics: implications for hominin forelimb evolution" sin the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Objectives: Brachial index is a skeletal ratio that describes the relative length of the distal forelimb. Over the course of hominin evolution, a shift towards smaller brachial indices occurred. First, Pleistocene australopiths yield values between extant chimpanzees and humans, with further evolution in Pliocene Homo to...
