It is now renowned that the idea that of drifting continents turned an estab­ lished thought in the course of the Nineteen Sixties. no longer lengthy after this "revolution within the earth sciences," researchers all started utilizing the continental waft version to difficulties in historic biogeography. One such challenge was once the foundation and dispersal of the recent international monkeys, the Platyrrhini. Our pursuits during this topic begun within the past due Sixties on diverse conti­ nents fairly autonomous of each other within the towns of Florence, Italy, and Berkeley, California. In Florence in 1968, A. B. Chiarelli, via stimulating discussions with R. von Koenigswald and B. de Boer, turned intrigued with the chance repositioning of the continents of Africa and South the USA within the early Cenozoic could modify past conventional conceptions of a North American foundation of the Platyrrhini. in the course of the early Seventies this con­ cept used to be increased and pursued by way of him via discussions with scholars whereas serving as traveling professor on the college of Toronto. by way of this time, book of the magazine of Human Evolution was once good underway, and Dr. Chiarelli as editor inspired a discussion emphasizing continental float versions of primate origins which culminated in a sequence of articles released in that magazine in the course of 1974-75. In early 1970, whereas attending the college of California at Berkeley, R. L. Ciochon was once brought to the concept that of continental glide and plate tectonics and their concomitant purposes to vertebrate evolution via talks with paleontologist W. A. Clemens and anthropologist S. L. Washburn.
