Ancestor of the human lineage

And the plot thickens …

The immediate ancestor of the human lineage may have lived off a woodland diet of leaves, fruits and bark instead of a menu based on the open savanna as other extinct relatives of humanity did, researchers say.

Food was a major environmental force that shaped the human lineage – perhaps influencing key moments such as when humans’ ancestors started walking upright – and these new findings help reveal the complex evolutionary paths these ancestors took in response to the world around them, the scientists add.
