Next ISO lecture topic is “Do the Locomotion: Lucy’s Feet were Made for Walking”

Join the next Institute for the Science of Origins’ noontime lecture, “Do the Locomotion: Lucy’s Feet were Made for Walking,” to be held Nov. 16 at noon in Ford Auditorium. Carol Ward, from University of Missouri’s Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, will lead the lecture. Ward’s research, funded by the National Science Foundation, looks at the evolution of apes and hominins from the Miocene through the early Pleistocene, with an emphasis on the locomotor skeleton. She studies cranial and postcranial remains of early Australopithecus as well as later hominin postcranial anatomy and variation in the early Pleistocene of Kenya.
