  • Descrição: This paper examines whether there has been an overall reduction in the likely size of Pongo from the Pleistocene to the present day. It is concluded that the original suggestion by Hooijer (1948) that the evolution of Pongo over the last half-million years was characterized by a reduction in dental size, corresponding to a reduction in overall body size, is likely. There were, however, fluctuations in dental size during the Pleistocene. Overall, in the Sundaic region a slight reduction in overall dental size continued from Late Pleistocene to the present day.
