The Earliest Human Ancestors
Thursday, February 17, 2022, 11:30am – 12:30pm EST
Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, so it might seem like they are good models for the kind of ape that human ancestors evolved from. But what do we really know about the earliest human ancestors? Were they chimpanzee-like?
In this webinar, Ashley Hammond, Associate Curator of Biological Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History, will synthesize research she and other colleagues have conducted to better understand the origins of our lineage.
Moderator: Briana Pobiner, paleoanthropologist and educator at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
This program is offered as part of the ongoing HOT (Human Origins Today) Topic series.
This program will be presented as a Zoom video webinar. A link will be emailed to all registrants.
