You are the product of billions of years of evolutionary change! Approximately 10 million years ago, our ancient ancestors split from the ancestors of modern chimpanzees. This led to the evolution of many different species in the hominin lineage. Ultimately, one species was left standing: ours! Join anthropologist Lindsay Barone to explore the hominins one-by-one in a DNALC Live series called Species Shorts.
In Episode 5, you will:
• Explore the differences between robust and gracile australopithecines
• Learn about what it means to be an evolutionary “dead end”
