Rewriting evolution – our fishy origins

Tonight, Professor John Long, Strategic Professor of Palaeontology, will talk about “Rewriting evolution – our fishy origins” at the Alere Function Centre, Flinders University, as part of the BRAVE lecture series.

BRAVE

Come and hear about how the beginnings of the human body plan first appeared in fishes, deep in geological time. “Professor Long will discuss his thesis that the big steps in human evolution took place well before fishes left the water to invade land. This research provides a new perspective on humans’ evolutionary story; one which comes from looking up from the water’s edge, not looking down from the trees.

I’ll be on the panel for the discussion to follow John’s presentation, alongside Associate Professor Paul Willis (founder and CEO, Media Engagement Services) and Associate Professor Diego Garcia-Bellido (University of Adelaide and South Australian Museum).
