dc.description.abstract This dissertation aims to increase our understanding of Papio by: 1) examining variation within and between baboon species; 2) investigating morphological integration in the cranium, and; 3) determining what evolutionary processes produce diversification among baboon crania. Twenty-five three-dimensional cranial landmarks on six-hundred and sixty four baboon crania from seven species were digitized. Forty-seven linear distances, chosen to cover the skull with minimal redundancy, were calculated from these coordinate data. en_ZA
