TEDTalks : Zeresenay Alemseged--Finding the origins of humanity( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paleoanthropologist Zeresenay "Zeray" Alemseged studies the origins of humanity deep in the Ethiopian desert. Through his Dikika Research Project (DRP) he discovered the earliest known skeleton of a hominid child, the 3.3 million-year-old bones of Selam, a 3-year-old girl of the species Australopithecus afarensis. "We have two choices: One is to continue to see a poor, ill, crying Africa, carrying guns, that depends on other people forever, or to promote an Africa which is confident, peaceful, independent, but cognizant of its huge problems and great values at the same time." Director and Curator of the Anthropology department at the California Academy of Sciences Alemseged discusses how Africa holds the clues to our humanity and about finding the oldest skeleton of a humanoid child in this informative TEDTalk
Les Australopithèques( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présente l'ensemble des fossiles d'australopithèques découverts à ce jour, en replaçant ce groupe d'hominidés parmi l'arbre généalogique des hommes. Cette synthèse regroupe un historique, une définition des espèces, une révision anatomique des restes crâniens et postcrâniens, un récapitulatif des sites, un inventaire des pièces fossiles
L'hominidé Omo-323 : Sa position phylétique et son environnement dans le cadre de l'évolution des communautés de mammifères du plio-pleistocène dans la basse vallée de l'Omo (Ethiopie) by Zeresenay Alemseged( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DANS CE TRAVAIL DEUX ASPECTS DE L'EVOLUTION DES HOMINIDES SONT CONSIDERES, LA SYSTEMATIQUE ET L'ENVIRONNEMENT. LA PREMIERE REPOSE SUR LA DESCRIPTION D'OMO-323, UN CRANE INCOMPLET VENANT DU MEMBRE G DE LA FORMATION DE SHUNGURA. CE SPECIMEN PEUT ETRE ATTRIBUE A AUSTRALOPITHECUS BOISEI ET REPRESENTE DONC LE PLUS VIEUX CRANE DE CETTE ESPECE, QUOIQUE DES RESSEMBLANCES PUISSENT ETRE OBSERVEES ENTRE OMO-323 ET AUSTRALOPITHECUS AETHIOPICUS, ETAYANT L'HYPOTHESE D'UNE LIGNEE <SINGLE HIGH-REVERSED-9 QUOTATION MARK>ROBUSTE<RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK> EST AFRICAINE ENTRE ENVIRON 2,7 MA ET 1,2 MA. LE FOSSILE DE L'OMO MONTRE DES PARTICULARITES AINSI ACCROISSENT LA VARIABILITE INTRESPECIFIQUE DEJA CONNUE CHEZ A. BOISEI. DANS LES ETUDES ENVIRONNEMENTALES, UNE APPROCHE UNIVARIEE EN UTILISANT TROIS FAMILLES (BOVIDES, SUIDES ET CERCOPITHECIDES) MONTRE L'EXISTENCE DE VARIATIONS DE LA COMPOSITION FAUNIQUE TOUT AU LONG DE LA PERIODE PRISE EN COMPTE DANS CETTE ETUDE. UNE BAISSE DES PRECIPITATIONS EST ENREGISTREE DANS LA TRANSITION ENTRE LES MEMBRES AB ET CD. DES TENDANCES SIMILAIRES SONT OBSERVEES ENTRE CD ET EF MAIS SONT ACCOMPAGNEES D'UNE OUVERTURE RELATIVEMENT IMPORTANTE. DANS LA PARTIE INFERIEURE DU MEMBRE G LES MILIEUX OUVERTS SEMBLENT ETRE DOMINANTS MAIS LA PRECIPITATION EST EN HAUSSE DE NOUVEAU. LES RESULTATS DE CETTE APPROCHE SONT PARFOIS CONTRADICTOIRES LORSQUE LES INTERPRETATIONS SE BASENT SUR UN SEUL GROUPE. L'IMPORTANCE DE L'UTILISATION DES DIVERS TAXONS SIMULTANEMENT EST DONC A SOULIGNER LORS DES RECONSTITUTIONS ENVIRONNEMENTALES. UNE APPLICATION DE L'ANALYSE FACTORIELLE DES CORRESPONDANCES SUR DES BOVIDES ACTUELS CONFIRME LES SPECIFICITES ENVIRONNEMENTALES DES TRIBUS. CETTE ETUDE MONTRE AUSSI DES PARTICULARITES ENVIRONNEMENTALES POUR LES GENRES ET LES ESPECES A L'INTERIEUR DES GRANDES BIOTOPES ETABLIS AU NIVEAU DE LA TRIBU. DE PLUS CETTE ETUDE MET EN EVIDENCE LA SUPERIORITE DE CES APPROCHES SUR D'AUTRES METHODES STATISTIQUES QUI CONSIDERENT UNE STRUCTURE A PRIORI. UNE ETUDE TAPHONOMIQUE SUR LA RELATION ENTRE LES DIVERS ELEMENTS ANATOMIQUES ET LES DIFFERENTS MILIEUX DE DEPOT INDIQUE QUE LA PROPORTION ENTRE LES ELEMENTS CRANIENS ET POSTCRANIENS DANS UNE LOCALITE VARIE SELON LE MILIEU DE DEPOT. L'ASSEMBLAGE FOSSILE DE LA LOCALITE OMO-323 A ETE DETERMINE COMME AUTOCHTONE PAR UNE ETUDE BASEE SUR UNE ANALYSE DETAILLEE DE NEUF LOCALITES. PAR AILLEURS UNE ETUDE MULTIVARIEE REALISEE SUR UN NOMBRE CONSIDERABLE DE LOCALITES DE LA FORMATION DE SHUNGURA REVELE UNE COEXISTENCE D'AU MOINS DEUX TYPES DE MILIEUX, EN EQUILIBRE FLUCTUANT
