@carlzimmer But wouldn't it mostly be because our closest living relatives live in water-rich places, while we evolved in a savannah-like environment? Wouldn't a comparison to baboons or vervets be more relevant in this context?

@carlzimmer They even mentioned baboons in the study, but only in passing... So maybe the take-home message here is that we are baboons of the apes :)
