My Two-Cents on Chororapithecus abyssinicus

Another quickie, I’ve read the Chororapithecus abyssinicus paper and wrote up a blog post again over at Primatology.net since we’re dealing with primate evolution. Even so, this paper has some applications to anthropology, especially since it raises some questions about mistakes in molecular clock calibrations.

If you wanna learn about how enamel-dentin junction is important to paleoanthropology, or how micro-CT scans were used in this study, check out my post and please comment and share your thoughts on the paper.

One thought on “My Two-Cents on Chororapithecus abyssinicus

  1. As I’ve said elsewhere the molecular clock may still be accurate. For the last few days I’ve been reading anything I can lay my hands on regarding introgression of mitochondrial DNA. Seems it’s much more common that we’ve generally accepted. Could account for the apparently conflicting evidence.
