The Upright Ape: Bipedalism and Human Origins

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 4th, 2014

From Jeff Meldrum:

Worth considering. ~ Jeff Meldrum

Why are we the only two-legged creature to develop an exclusively upright gait? And what did it mean to the development of the human species? CARTA brings you foremost experts to explore the many facets of these questions in this fascinating series with presentations from Brian Richmond, Carol Ward and Chris Ruff that compare different evidence and aspects of hominid body form and what those tell us about upright locomotion in hominids. Series: “CARTA – Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny” [3/2012] [Science] [Show ID: 23441]

Note especially Leslie Aiello’s presentation (2nd speaker) ~ Jeff Meldrum
