  • Primate thanatology and hominoid mortuary archeology. [Review]
    Primates 2019Pettitt P, Anderson JR
  • In recent years, a thanatology of primates has become a respectable research topic, and although still sparse, observations among several taxa have shown how complex responses to the dead can be. In human evolutionary archeology, re-analysis of old 'burial' sites is slowly revising our view on the development of specifically human responses to the dead. We propose here the means of integrating in…
  • Case-specific characteristics of pink teeth in dental autopsies - A systematic review. [Review]
    J Forensic Leg Med 2019; 68:101869Franco A, de Oliveira MN, … Paranhos LR
  • The cadaveric alterations that derive from the decomposition of the human body are often investigated and examined in medical autopsies together with any other evidence of thanatological interest. This study aimed to systematically review case-specific characteristics of dental autopsies that reported the pink tooth phenomenon (PTP). The review was performed in October/2018 and followed PRISMA an…
  • Do chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) console a bereaved mother? [Journal Article]
    Primates 2019Goldsborough Z, van Leeuwen EJC, … Webb CE
  • Comparative thanatology encompasses the study of death-related responses in non-human animals and aspires to elucidate the evolutionary origins of human behavior in the context of death. Many reports have revealed that humans are not the only species affected by the death of group members. Non-human primates in particular show behaviors such as congregating around the deceased, carrying the corps…
  • Responses to a dead companion in a captive group of tufted capuchins (Sapajus apella). [Journal Article]
    Primates 2019De Marco A, Cozzolino R, Thierry B
  • The observation of specific reactions by animals to dead conspecifics raises questions about their capacity to understand death. We describe the behavior of a captive group of tufted capuchins in the hours following the death of an adult female. The behavior of 12 subjects was recorded over a 5-h period. Most group members displayed exploratory behaviors toward the corpse, peering at it, smelling…
