Regarding articles in Archaeology, nov-dec 1995, by A M H Schuster,
describing Tim Whites' discovery, and Dec. 95 nat geo article by Meave
Leakey re: her own groups discoveries. I just did a paper on these
articles, and would be interested in opinions of others on their finds.
Is Ardipithecus a newly described genus? are there other known species
of the genus? Also, what's the current trend on number of species in
genus Australopithecus ?
