Figure 1. Bivariate plots of humeral mid-distal diaphyseal cortical area vs. total area (Top) and humeral length (Middle), plus mid-distal polar moment of area vs. humeral length (Bottom). Solid pentagons, Eurasian late archaic humans; solid squares, Levantine Middle Paleolithic early modern humans; gray diamonds, European Early Upper Paleolithic early modern humans; empty triangles, Eurasian Middle Upper Paleolithic early modern humans.

Figure 2. Bivariate plots femoral midshaft cortical area vs. total area (Top) and femoral length (Middle), plus midshaft polar moment of area vs. femoral length (Bottom). Symbols are as in Fig. 1.

Figure 3. Bivariate plots of femoral midshaft cortical area (Upper) and polar moment of area (Lower) vs. femoral length adjusted for variation in body core laterality. Symbols are as in Fig. 1.

Figure 4. Midshaft cross sections of late archaic and early modern human femora.

Figure 5. Bivariate plots of femoral midshaft antero-posterior vs. medio-lateral second moments of area (Top), antero-posterior second moment of area vs. adjusted femoral length (Middle), and medio-lateral second moment of area vs. adjusted femoral length (Bottom). Symbols are as in Fig. 1.
