Environment and behavior of 2.5-million-year-old Bouri hominids.
TLDR
The combined evidence suggests that behavioral changes associated with lithic technology and enhanced carnivory may have been coincident with the emergence of the Homo clade from Australopithecus afarensis in eastern Africa.
Ardipithecus ramidus and the Paleobiology of Early Hominids
TLDR
Ardipithecus ramidus indicates that despite the genetic similarities of living humans and chimpanzees, the ancestor the authors last shared probably differed substantially from any extant African ape.
The characteristics and chronology of the earliest Acheulean at Konso, Ethiopia
TLDR
A newly established chronometric calibration is provided for the Acheulean assemblages of the Konso Formation, southern Ethiopia, which span the time period ∼1.75 to <1.0 Ma, paralleling the emergence of Homo erectus-like hominid morphology.
The earliest Acheulean from Konso-Gardula
KONSO-GARDULA is a palaeoanthropological area discovered by the 1991 Palaeoanthropological Inventory of Ethiopia1–5 in the southern Main Ethiopian Rift. The Konso-Gardula sediments span the period
A new species of great ape from the late Miocene epoch in Ethiopia
TLDR
The combined evidence suggests that Chororapithecus may be a basal member of the gorilla clade, and that the latter exhibited some amount of adaptive and phyletic diversity at around 10–11 Myr ago.
Stratigraphic, chronological and behavioural contexts of Pleistocene Homo sapiens from Middle Awash, Ethiopia
TLDR
Stratigraphically associated Late Middle Pleistocene artefacts and fossils from fluvial and lake margin sandstones of the Upper Herto Member of the Bouri Formation, Middle Awash, Afar Rift, Ethiopia and archaeological assemblages contain elements of both Acheulean and Middle Stone Age technocomplexes.
The first skull of Australopithecus boisei
TLDR
The unexpected combination of cranial and facial features of this skull cautions against the excessive taxonomic splitting of early hominids based on morphological detail documented in small and/or geographically restricted samples.
Remains of Homo erectus from Bouri, Middle Awash, Ethiopia
TLDR
Daka's resemblance to Asian counterparts indicates that the early African and Eurasian fossil hominids represent demes of a widespread palaeospecies and Daka's anatomical intermediacy between earlier and later African fossils provides evidence of evolutionary change.
The earliest Acheulean from Konso-Gardula
TLDR
The cat specimen featured on the cover of the issue of 24/31 December 1992, originally referred to Homotherium as detailed in the cover caption, was changed to Dinofelis sp.
Asa Issie, Aramis and the origin of Australopithecus
