My project aimed for understanding the effects of the climatic changes in the Pliocene period, whether climatic and environmental factors are also influence in diet ecology and as to whether an effect between dietary ecology and masticatory morphology of Ardipithecus, Australopithecus and Paranthropus (these species are the early hominids in Pliocene period).
The environmental/climatic changes in the Pliocene are the one of the most problematic and very interesting issue because of their effects on dietary (habitat) ecology and masticatory anatomy of Ardipithecus, Australopithecus and Paranthropus. The climatic/environmental change is a key factor in occurrence of habitat (dietary ecology). Together with these changes, which are reduced rainfall and cooler temperatures or from forest to savanna, the habitat of the early hominids was shifted so their feeding ground is changed. In other respects, the masticatory morphology of Ardipithecus, Australopithecus and Paranthropus is impressed by these variations. These variations are changing of climate/environment, habitat (quality of food sources-type of food consumed) and the reflect size/shape of the early hominids teeth.
Whether the understanding of the effect of the environmental/climatic changes on the diet ecology and the masticatory anatomy of Ardipithecus, Australopithecus and Paranthropus is indispensable to determine these changes in evolutionary process.
