Abstract

This response to Rosenberg 1988 reviews five key issues to assist in a clearer understanding of the drivers to Neandertal pelvic morphology. These are the relationship between maternal height/size and neonate size, neonate and maternal dimensions, selection on the pelvic aperture, what happens when this is too small, and sex determination from Neandertal remains.

Keywords: Neandertal, Neaderthal, pubic bone length, maternal and neonate size, allometry

JEL Classification: Z00
