- So, - continued Lovejoy, - there are a number of reasons for the increase in K-strategy. In vertebrates, this trend was accompanied by a progressive specialization. Frogs are more developed compared with oysters, alligators - compared with frogs, rabbits - in comparison to alligators, monkeys - compared with rabbits, anthropoids - in comparison with monkeys. More developed brain - a smaller number of eggs - a great focus on the K-strategy. - Of course, I do not want to say that K-strategy increases mental abilities, but these factors are undoubtedly linked. Since the brains - is clearly an adaptive trait, it is clear that under the right conditions, it can be amplified. And these conditions for some primates, seem to have been quite appropriate. Although we have only circumstantial evidence in the form of fossils, we can assume that in the Miocene apes have reached a high enough intellectual level. Apparently, these animals resembled modern chimpanzees. They went to poluvypryamlennom position, deftly manipulating her hands were more developed than monkeys with lower brain. It is also possible to think that apes of the Miocene was strongly expressed K-strategy. Finally we reached a point in our discussion, when you can come to grips with the question: why, in one of the lines apes developed a true bipedal locomotion? Or, in other words, what is the relationship between the K-strategy and bipedal locomotion?
