  • Hominid fossils predating the emergence of Australopithecus have been sparse and fragmentary. [...] Key Result More than 110 specimens recovered from 4.4-million-year-old sediments include a partial skeleton with much of the skull, hands, feet, limbs, and pelvis. This hominid combined arboreal palmigrade clambering and careful climbing with a form of terrestrial bipedality more primitive than that of Australopithecus. Ar.Expand Abstract
