“Paleoanthropology Meets Primatology” talk at Rutgers, May 3, 3:30 pm

I thought this was worth remembering from the deluge of emails we receive, seems interesting:

“Paleoanthropology Meets Primatology: New Insights into Bipedalism, Tools and Foraging in the Early Stages of Human Evolution
For forty years Jack Harris has conducted field and laboratory studies on archaeological materials recovered from the Koobi Fora Formation, east of Lake Turkana. This body of research has yielded a comprehensive record of changing technology and behavior for early ancestors of modern humans. These clues to our ancestor’s life ways are reflected in diet, foraging and ranging systems of Plio-Pleistocene hominids that lived in Northern Kenya. This presentation highlights the work of Jack Harris, professor of anthropology, Rutgers University. This work has been done in unique and innovative collaborations with Rutgers undergraduate and graduate students who have participated in the Koobi Fora Field School in Paleoanthropology (run annually by Dr. Harris) and scientists from the National Museums of Kenya.”
