Although closely related, geladas are not members of the baboon genus, but instead have their own genus, Theropithecus (Greek for “giant beast.

About this book This unique volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date examination of all aspects of the biology of the Old World monkey genus, Theropithecus. The parallels between the evolution of Theropithecus and early hominids are discussed. There are also two chapters of particular significance which describe how an innovative and exciting approach to the modelling of the causes of species extinction can be used with great success.

Stable isotope analyses of tooth enamel from T. brumpti (– Ma) and T. oswaldi (– Ma) in Kenya show that the earliest Theropithecus at 4 Ma had a diet dominated by C 4 resources. Progressively, this genus increased the proportion of C 4. Theropithecus darti from the Hadar Formation, Ethiopia; 3.
