Human evolution has made headlines in Nature since Raymond Dart published the first description of Australopithecus africanus in 1925 (Nature 115, 195-199, 1925). Since then, Nature has published the biggest news of new fossil discoveries. Zinjanthropus, Homo habilis, Sahelanthropus, Ardipithecus, Turkana Boy, Lucy, bones from Atapuerca and Dmanisi, Tools from Turkana and Olduvai, Gona and Happisburgh, the genomes of Neanderthals and the still-enigmatic Denisovans, and not forgetting the remarkable hobbits from Flores - all these and many more have made their debuts in the pages of Nature. This resource offers the latest news and opinion from the Nature Publishing Group in this exciting and often contentious field, and constantly updated archive of research going back a decade.
