New information on Ardipithecus ramidus, the most complete fossilized skeleton proposed as an ancestor of modern humans, was published today in Science.

As an added bonus, 11 papers that describe A. ramidus and its environment are available via free download from Science (non-members just need to register) here.

Interested in what the articles say but don’t have time to read them all? Discover Magazine has a nice synopsis.
