Origin of Apes: Lehman College Researcher Joins International Team in Groundbreaking Discovery

February 26, 2014 | Lehman College

An international team of researchers, co-led by Professor William Harcourt-Smith, has discovered the remains of an ancient forest on Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya – evidence of the habitat of the early ape Proconsul. Their findings – published in February 2014 in Nature Communications – show that Proconsul and its primate relative Dendropithecus inhabited “a widespread, dense, multistoried, closed canopy” forest. The fossils will help scientists understand the connection between ancient habitats and the emergence of ape lineages, including our own.
