    The whites of their eyes: The evolution of the distinctive sclera in humans
    (Wichita State University. Department of Anthropology, 2008) Bickham, Joanna
    Two major studies which are explored in this paper concern the comparative morphology of a wide range of primates, how these differences affect behavior, and what inferences one can make regarding the adaptive reasons behind those differences. Hiromi Kobayashi and Shiro Kohshima conducted a study in 1998 that measured the eyes of 88 species of primates using computer-aided image analysis to determine the differences between species and to examine how these differences correlate with biological and environmental variability (Kobayashi & Kohshima 2001). Michael Tomasello and associates have carried out numerous studies using apes, monkeys, and children that explore issues relating to cognition and communication; this body of work is integrated into the “cooperative eye hypothesis,” which will be explored in the body of this paper (Tomasello et al. 2007:316).
