Again John, the lit review is to the point. The other stuff (apes, humans,
SA primates) is just filler to pin the lemur picture somewhere. Hence she
provides the average idea, the consensus, and you know what it is, even if
you disagree with it. There is nothing really wrong with that because she
is not discussing the human-ape issue anyway. As for dispersalism, well as
the generally accepted timing for the origin of lemurs is somewhere in the
Palaeocene-Eocene and Madagascar split well before, it is little wonder she
is talking divergence. Sure, there could have been a few islands in the
middle, but unless you can prove the existance of a solid bridge then they
got wet and dispersal it (probably) is.
