ABSTRACT
This article discusses the results of a research study conducted to examine the processes that contributed to the evolution of human dentition. Particular focus is given to the evolution of dentition in different primates, including the lorises, the galagos, and the tarsioids. It is noted that this is the third section of a research study, the first and second parts of which were published in two previous issues of the journal.

According to one school of thought, many such changes are likely to be found in noncoding sequence. An approach to identifying these involves comparing...
