the dental microwear features of the extant Papio ursinus (n=5) were also observed and recorded.
To test this hypothesis, dental microwear was observed in 15 individuals from Gorilla gorilla (n = 3), Pan troglodytes (n = 2), Theropithecus gelada (n = 1), Papio cynocephalus (n= 2), Papio anubis (n = 2), Papio ursinus (n = 2), Cebus apella (n =2) and Pongo pygmaeus (n = 1) using low-magnification stereomicroscopy with an external and moveable light source.
A discriminant function analysis of four dental microwear features clearly separates Papio ursinus from fossil taxa on the basis of fine scratches.
