Cranial capacity of oreopithecus bambolii

William L. Straus, Miguel A. Schön

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


From a plaster reconstruction of the skull of the August 1958 skeleton, the cranial capacity of Oreopithecus bam-bolii has been estimated as falling between 276 and 529 cubic centimeters, thus with-in the ranges of variation of both orang-utan and chimpanzee. In cranial capacity, therefore, and probably in body-brain ratio as well, Oreopithecus is a hominoid.
