Free Virtual Lecture: THE Last Common Ancestor
Ashley Hammond will discuss her approach to identifying key evolutionary adaptations of this common ancestor using 3D technology, fossil analyses, and field research at six-million-year-old sites in Kenya.
The last common ancestor of chimpanzees and modern humans is believed to have evolved in Africa six to eight million years ago. Finding fossil apes and hominins—extinct members of the human lineage—from this period has been challenging. Ashley Hammond will discuss her approach to identifying key evolutionary adaptations of this last common ancestor using 3D technology, analyses of known fossils, and field research at six-million-year-old sites in Kenya. Hammond’s research aims to clarifyView more
