Alwin Bethel Evolution, Behavior, and Ecology Steudel-Numbers, K.L. 2006. Energetics in Homo erectus and other early hominins: The consequences of increased lower-limb length. Journal of Human Evolution, 51: 445-453 In the methods section, there are subdivisions that talk about the scaling of DEE in primates, the velocity on the cost of transport, the scaling of DEE in primates, and DEE in fossil hominins. The discussion section talks about the scaling of DEE in primates and hominins. The author researches previous studies of primate daily energy expenditure (DEE) and learns that the studies obtain their DEE estimates from proportional scaling to the DEE of humans. The author challenges many of the earlier studies, because they created many inconsistencies, and generated unreliable, data-lacking information. For example in one of the previous studies, the scientist used speed-dependent information, but did not record any data on travel speed. In another study the scientist only used six species, which were all non-
