Orangutans, including chimpanzees and gorillas, are our closest residing kin. Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Orangutans, the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the genus Pongo, adopts an analogous structure because the photographic atlases of Gorilla, Pan and Hylobates formerly released by means of a similar authors. those 4 books are a part of a chain of monographs that would set out the comparative and phylogenetic context of the gross anatomy and evolutionary historical past of the gentle tissue morphology of recent people and their closest kinfolk.
The current atlas, which include specific fine quality pictures of musculoskeletal buildings from such a lot anatomical areas of the physique in addition to textual information regarding the attachments, innervation, functionality and weight of the respective muscular tissues, relies on dissections of 5 orangutans and on an in depth assessment of the literature. It presents an up to date assessment of the anatomical diversifications inside of orangutans in addition to an in depth checklist of the synonyms utilized in the literature to designate the constructions we speak about. it will likely be of curiosity to scholars, academics and researchers learning primatology, comparative anatomy, practical morphology, zoology, and actual anthropology and to scientific scholars, medical professionals and researchers who're eager about the beginning, evolution, homology and diversifications of the musculoskeletal buildings of contemporary humans.
