An article I wrote about the Evolang conference in Barcelona is available for free online at the BioScience site here. BioScience is the magazine of the American Institute of Biological Sciences.

Interesting about the hyoid. Can we establish a sequence of hyoid bone evolution for the different homo species? Are there any hyoid remains from Homo Erectus, Homo habilis or the australopithecines? Can the evolution of the larynx have something to do with the erect posture (no doubt it has, but are there studies which try to reason to which extent)? So many questions, sorry...
BLOGGER: No hyoids yet from erectus. There is an afarensis hyoid of ape design, but it is for a child and so not conclusive about adults; however, even long termers such as I don't expect human hyoids in Lucy.
