Ardipithecus ramidus in the news

The new 4.4 million year old fossil of the newly found hominid, Ardipithecus ramidus gets it's fair share of attention in Science with 11 article in one issue. Science has made all the articles free, here's your chance to print out great readings for the whole weekend.

Carl Zimmer at The Loom
Great review, as always.

Matthew Cobb at Why Evolution is True
Spells out the fact that we don't know whether Ardi is a human ancestor or not (though she definitely isn't an ancestor of both chimp and humans).

PZ Myers at Pharyngula
As usual, cranky about the science reporting.

Someone at
Lots of links to press coverage.

Mailund on the Internet
Even more links to blogs on Ardi.
