Reticulate Evolution and Humans

Michael L. Arnold

Oxford University Press

Instances of hybridization, introgression, and hybrid speciation in primate groups that are more or less distantly related to our own species are appropriate analogies for understanding the likelihood of reticulate evolution in the clade that includes Homo sapiens. This chapter begins by constructing the analogy using primate groups from Central and South America. It then continues by considering Old World primate clades including lemurs, lorises, langurs, baboons, guenons, mangabeys, macaques, gibbons, and orangutans.

Keywords:   hybridization, introgression, hybrid speciation, primate groups, reticulate evolution
