   schema:reviewBody ""This book provides the first detailed descriptions, photographs, and analysis of the fossil vertebrates - ranging from elephants and hyenas to humans - from the Daka Member of the Bouri Formation of the Afar, a place renowned for an abundant and lengthy record of human ancestors. These fossils contribute significant insights to our understanding of human evolution, and the associated fauna provides new information about the distribution and variation of Pleistocene mammals in eastern Africa. The contributors, all active researchers who worked on the paleontology and geology of these unique deposits, have combined their efforts into a single volume, making the results accessible to both the specialist and the general reader. The volume synthesizes details of anatomy and environment to open an unparalleled window on the African Pleistocene and its inhabitants."--BOOK JACKET." ;
