Lothagam : the dawn of humanity in eastern Africa by Meave G Leakey( Book )

Located at the southwest corner of Lake Turkana in northern Kenya, Lothagam represents one of the most important intervals in African prehistory. Early human remains are restricted in distribution to Africa and the acquisition of an upright bipedal striding gait, the hallmark of humanity, appears to be at least circumstantially linked to the reduction of equatorial forests and the spread of grasslands on that continent. The diverse Lothagam fauna documents the end-Miocene transition from forested to more open habitats that were exploited by grazing horses and antelopes, hippos, giant pigs, and true elephants. It also includes spectacularly complete fossil carnivore skeletons and some of the oldest human remains

"Dr. Friedemann Schrenk searches for hominid fossils with famed paleoanthropologist Meave Leakey in East Africa. At excavation sites in northern Tanzania, Leakey discusses four-million-year-old findings and traces their relationship to previous findings--Lucy, an Australopithicus afarensis skull found in Ethiopia; Nutcracker Skull, an Australopithecus boisei found in East Africa; and the skull of Homo habilis discovered in 1964. These and other skulls are analyzed within the context of the major evolutionary theories ..."--Container

"Dr. Friedemann Schrenk travels to the Makapansgat caves, the excavation at Sterkfontein, the Gladysvale site, Uraha, Witwatersrand University, and Hunter College to study hominid remains with Phillip Tobias, Peter Schmid, Timthy Bromage, and other leading experts. Raymond Dart's 1924 discovery of the Taung Child is appraised--and by comparing fossil bones, his theory that Australopithecus africanus walked upright is confirmed, while his theory of early man as a "killer ape" is debunked ..."--Container

The Ape that took over the world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the key theory about how we evolved from apes based on mistaken evidence? Since 1974, the 3.2-million-year-old fossil dubbed "Lucy" has been considered humankind's prime ancestor. Now, a fossil recently unearthed in Kenya by distinguished paleontologist Dr. Meave Leakey is rewriting the theories. This program examines the implications of Flat-Faced Man, a bipedal hominid just as old as Lucy but with a much larger brain size. With Leakey's find, the question for paleoanthropologists is one of adaptive radiation: from which line of early ape did Homo sapiens evolve?
