Recent fossil discoveries of early human ancestors from paleoanthropological sites in Africa and elsewhere have demonstrated how various phases of human evolutionary history were much more

Primate adaptations and evolution in the Southern African Rift Valley

Gorongosa National Park in central Mozambique offers an unparalleled setting for the study of primate adaptations to complex and highly dynamic environments, and provided an ideal setting to bring together a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists to discuss “New perspectives on primate adaptation to complex environments and implications for early human evolution.

A lower Pliocene Erymnochelyini turtle (Pleurodira, Podocnemididae) from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The taxon from the Democratic Republic of Congo is analyzed in detail, not only considering current knowledge about the lineage but also incorporating new material into this study, highlighting several partial skulls that corresponds to one of the members of this lineage represented by a greater number of skulls.

Ardipithecus ramidus and the Paleobiology of Early Hominids

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.

Morphology of Australopithecus anamensis from Kanapoi and Allia Bay, Kenya.

Based on the limited postcranial evidence available, A. anamensis appears to have been habitually bipedal, although it retained some primitive features of its upper limbs, and there appears to be no autapomorphies precluding A.Anamensis from ancestry of A. afarensis.
