Abstract

A comparison of the dorsal boundary of the hard palate among various primate species reveals three variations of form. The tendency towards intraspecific variation, particularly among the Prosimians and to a lesser degree in Simians, eliminates the possibility of a taxonomic interpretation. Tupaias show morphological characteristics which are considerably different from those of primates. The variation observed in this region is viewed in association with different functional parameters which may depend on the degree of prognathism. Anhand einer vergleichend anatomischen Untersuchung verschiedener Primatenspezies konnten für den dorsalen Rand des harten Gaumens drei unterscheidbare Formvarianten festgestellt werden. Die offenbar vor allem bei Prosimiern hohe Tendenz zu intraspezifischer Variation schließt eine taxonomische Interpretation der Formen allerdings aus. Tupaias zeigen klar von den Primaten differenzierbare morphologische Charakteristika. Für die in dieser Region beobachtbare Variation wird ein Zusammenhang mit unterschiedlichen funktionell-morphologischen Parametern, die durch mehr oder weniger starke Prognathie bedingt sein könnten, vermutet.
