Abstract
Speciation is not a monolithic process among primates. I use the concepts of biospeciation and morphospeciation (Godfrey, Marks 1991) to inform my consideration of the patterns of morphological diversification that occurred during the later evolution of genus Homo. Explicit comparisons between the socioecology of lemurs and baboons are used to develop interpretations of likely speciation processes in H. erectus and its descendants. I conclude that we should heed the lessons learned, particularly from baboons, in attempting to reconstruct our species' more recent natural history.
