This week, we will be discussing the Ancestor’s Tale, from Richard Dawkins. The attached exerpt explains the long view of human evolution.
Please read this and Ch 9 before you post to get the background for understanding human evolution. For this week’s discussion, please find recent (within the last 10 years) articles on human evolution that shed light on the earliest ancestors of our branch of the evolutionary tree of life.
Once again, please provide a two paragraph summary for your article. And please connect your research to what you have learned from Dawkins and CH 9 about human evolution.
Please be certain to give the full citation and DOI (if available). And please read through all the entries before submitting yours, so that you pick a novel article that has not yet been discussed!
