Skeletal variation and evolution of mountain gorilla populations

Mountain gorillas currently live in two, discontinuous localities in east and central Africa: the Virunga Mountains and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The gorillas that live in the two sites have a wealth of lifetime behavioural data, veterinary records, ecological data, and genetic information. Correlating life history events to skeletal remains allows us to better interpret the fossil record where only hard tissue remains.
