We concluded that hand-assisted arboreal bipedalism as part of a smooth continuum of orthograde behaviours ranging from suspending underneath branches to standing on top of them confers a major selective advantage on orangutans and argued that arboreal bipedalism would have been equally advantageous for ancestral crown hominoids (Figure 2).
By employing them as a baseline and drawing on the material from elsewhere as substantiating or invalidating aspects, he considers a number of theories from a number of angles, ultimately rejecting them all: in this book, hairy hominoids are not serving as moral, symbolic, or spiritual images, or indeed as a universal archetype.
