Comparative Anatomical Study of the Carotid Circulation in New and Old World Primates

Implications for Their Evolutionary History
  • J. Bugge
Part of the Advances in Primatology book series (AIPR)

Abstract

A comprehensive comparative anatomical investigation of the carotid circulation in several mammalian orders, viz., insectivores, primates, rodents, lagomorphs, edentates, pangolins and carnivores (cf. Bugge, 1974b, 1975a, 1978), has shown the cephalic arterial pattern to be an important supplement to other morphological systems, especially tooth morphology and osteology, as a basis for a systematic classification of mammals, reflecting their probable evolutionary history and phylogenetic relationships.
