1 CHAPTER 12 ADDITIONAL INVESTIGATION Comparing Indexes Among Primates Background Humans have the largest brains of all primates. In order to accommodate this large brain, the skull of a human has a vertical forehead, providing a large brain capacity. Humans belong to the Hominid family, which shares a common ancestor with apes. Knowledge of human ancestry is based on fossil remains. The oldest hominid fossils are about 3.8 million years old, and the oldest human fossils about 100,000 years old. The degree to which a fossil has human characteristics can be measured by the use of indexes. An index is a comparison of two measured quantities. An index can be calculated to show the proportion of skull that is above the eyes. This index, called the supraorbital height, provides information about the size of the braincase. In this investigation, you will determine indexes of skulls and hands for a modern human, a fossil hominid, and a gorilla. Problem How do primate indexes compare to one another? MATERIALS metric ruler scissors adhesive tape posterboard PROCESS SKILLS Observing Collecting Data Analyzing Data Drawing Conclusions Procedure Part A: Comparing Indexes of a Human, Gorilla, and Fossil Hominid 1 The first illustration depicts a human skull. The second illustration is of a gorilla skull. The third illustration is a skull of a fossil hominid, Australopithecus africanus. Determine the supraorbital height of each of these skulls. With a metric ruler measure the distances AC and BC in centimeters, as shown for each skull. Record these in Table 1. Human Skull EVOLUTION 41

2 Gorilla Skull Hominid Skull EVOLUTION 42

3 2 Multiply the value of BC by 100 and divide the result by AC. Round off the answer to the nearest whole number to obtain the supraorbital index. Record this value in Table 1. Which of the primates has the smallest supraorbital height? Which has the largest? Part B: Constructing a Measuring Square 1 Using scissors, carefully cut a piece of posterboard 30 cm 4.5 cm. 2 Measure and mark a distance of 2 cm from the long edge of the posterboard and then draw the line along the entire length of the piece. Fold the posterboard lengthwise as shown below. 3 Put the posterboard over the end of a metric ruler so it comes up to the 2-cm mark at one edge, as shown below. Then tape the piece of posterboard to the end of the ruler. A 4 Fold the piece of posterboard again, 1 to 2 cm from the original fold, so it fits over the end of the ruler as shown below. If it comes up past the 2-cm mark, trim the excess. Tape the second side of the posterboard to the end of the ruler. 5 Make sure that the ruler and piece of posterboard are at right angles to each other. If they are not, remove the tape and adjust the posterboard. Then tape loose ends together as shown below. Before continuing with the investigation, clean up your materials. B C D EVOLUTION 43

5 Hand bones of (a) gorilla, (b) Australopithecus africanus, and (c) modern human 2 Determine the thumb index for each by multiplying the length of the thumb by 100 and dividing the result by the length of the index finger. Round off the answer to the nearest whole number. Record the thumb index in the data table. Which of the primates that you measured has the smallest thumb index? Which has the largest? Observations Supraorbital height Thumb index TABLE 1. INDEXES OF A GORILLA, FOSSIL HOMINID, AND HUMANS Gorilla Australopithecus Human BC (in cm) AC (in cm) Index Thumb length (in cm) Index finger length (cm) Index Analyze and Conclude 1. Infer Why are the supraorbital height and thumb indexes important measurements in comparing primates? You EVOLUTION 45

6 2. Analyze One unique human adaptation is the grip between the thumb and forefinger. Why are other primates incapable of holding objects in this manner? 3. Conclude Based on data regarding the supraorbital height and thumb indexes, which primate is more closely related to humans, the gorilla or Australopithecus africanus? Support your conclusions. 4. Connect Scientists explain that the great similarity between apes and humans is because of their common ancestry. If this explanation is correct, then there should be fossil forms with characteristics indeterminate to those of apes and humans. Do data from this lab support the explanation or refute it? 5. Connect The indexes you have measured are indicators of proportion, not absolute size. On occasion, measurements of brain size have been incorrectly assumed to indicate the superiority of one person to another. Explain why this assumption is incorrect. 6. Connect Although the indexes you have measured are indicators of proportion, relative proportions of an animal change during growth. Therefore, indexes taken from immature animals can be misleading. How can you explain differences between some of your classmates supraorbital heights and that of the human skull on your data table? EVOLUTION 46
