1 Guided Inquiry Forensics Lab hapter 26 Lab Investigating Hominoid Fossils Problem What can a comparison of skulls and hands reveal about the evolution of humans? Introduction paleontologist takes photographs of a newly discovered fossil while it is in the ground and after it is removed. He or she also makes many measurements. These observations make it easier to compare the new fossil to fossils that have already been classified. How can a scientist know whether a skeleton is typical of its species? For example, a scientist may find that one skeleton is much taller than another. Does this variation in height indicate that the individuals were members of two different species? Does it reflect a range of heights within the same species? To deal with this problem, scientists use indexes. n index is a ratio that compares the value of one measurement in relation to another. Indexes are useful because they do not depend on overall size. Very tall and very short members of the same species should have similar indexes. With indexes, it is more likely that variations are related to differences in species, not just differences in size. In this lab, you will measure the skulls and hands of different hominoid species. You will use your measurements to calculate indexes that will help you compare these species. ig Idea The changes that occurred in certain bones as hominines evolved facilitated bipedal locomotion and tool use. Skills Objectives Students will be able to calculate indexes from pairs of related measurements. relate skeletal indexes to differences among species. lass Time 45 minutes Group Size Individuals Skills Focus Measure, nalyze Data, ompare and ontrast Materials metric ruler Term uild Vocabulary variation Definition The degree, or extent, to which a set of similar items differ, or vary uild Vocabulary Students will have a more successful lab experience if they understand these terms. proportion part considered in relation to the whole 161

2 Pre-Lab Questions 1. Use Models What will you use instead of actual skulls and hands to make your measurements? I will be using images of skulls and hands. 2. Interpret Visuals The bony cavities in a skull that protect the eyes are called orbits, or eye sockets. On the skulls, what does line measure? What does line measure? Line measures the distance from the bottom of the eye socket to the top of the skull. Line measures the distance from the top of the eye socket to the top of the skull. 3. Use nalogies Shoe sizes such as 9 and 11E (or 9 narrow and 11 extra-wide) are an example of an index. What two measurements are being compared in a shoe index? Sample answer: In a shoe size, the width of the shoe is being compared to the length of the shoe. Teaching Tip If possible, have at least one skull available for students to observe and discuss. Procedure Part : Supraorbital Height Index in Hominoids Figure 1 shows side views of skulls from four hominoid species. You will use these drawings to determine distances from the top of the skull to the upper and lower edges of the eye socket. Then you will calculate the supraorbital height index (SHI). This index indicates the proportion of the skull that is above the eyes. The prefix supra- means above. 1. Measure the distances and in centimeters for each skull. Record the measurements in Data Table For each species, divide the value of by the value of and multiply the result by 100. The result is the supraorbital height index (SHI). Round the answers to the nearest whole number, and record them in Data Table 1. Sample Data Data Table 1: Skull Measurements Species (cm) (cm) SHI Pan troglodytes ustralopithecus afarensis Homo erectus Homo sapiens

4 Homo erectus Homo sapiens 164

5 Part : Thumb Index in Hominoids Figure 2 depicts the thumb and index finger of Pan troglodytes, ustralopithecus afarensis, and Homo sapiens. You will use these drawings to calculate a thumb index for each species. The thumb index compares the length of the thumb to the length of the hand. 3. For each species, measure the length of the thumb and the length of the index finger in centimeters. Make these measurements from the tip of the digit to the point where the finger and thumb meet at the wrist joint. Record your results in Data Table To calculate the thumb index, divide thumb length by index finger length and multiply the result by 100. Round the answer to the nearest whole number and record the result in the table. Sample Data Data Table 2: Hand Measurements Thumb Length (cm) Index Finger Length (cm) Thumb Index Pan troglodytes Part Homo erectus is not included in Part because there are no known thumb bone fossils for this species. ustralopithecus afarensis Homo sapiens Figure 2 Hand bones of three hominoids Pan troglodytes ustralopithecus afarensis Homo sapiens 165
