Comparative Hand Evolution, Set of 4
COMP-144 $865.00

This set showcases the varying adaptations of the primate hand. Hand morphology in primates has to do with how the hand is used to move through environments and how objects are manipulated.

The metacarpals of Ardipithecus ramidus are about as short as those of the genus Homo and lack some of the boney structural enhancements seen in the chimpanzee hand.

The hand and wrist of Homo floresiensis resemble a more primitive morphology than that of modern humans. Specifically, some of the bones of the wrist (the trapezoid, scaphoid and capitate) resemble those found in African apes and australopithecines.

The morphology of the human, Homo sapiens, hand has allowed for a flexible wrist, independent elongated thumbs, and dexterous fingers able to precision grip and manipulate objects skillfully.

The hand of the chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes, possesses four long fingers and a shorter opposable thumb. Manipulations requiring precision are usually accomplished with the interaction of the thumb and middle finger, rather than the index finger.
