+Marko Bosscher None of the groups are nested in family trees.  It's Christmas, a time for creationists and evolutionists to grope toward common ground.

R.S. +Reasonable Ape Biologists Find an Evolutionary Facebook for Monkeys and Apes!
 
Biologists find an evolutionary Facebook for monkeys and apes

"In the present study, great apes had significantly lower facial complexity compared to monkeys," Lynch Alfaro said. "This may be because apes are using their faces for highly complex facial expressions and these expressions would be obscured by more complex facial color patterns. There may be competing pressures for and against facial pattern complexity in large groups, and different lineages may solve this problem in different ways."
