A new theory on early human evolution
Early human evolution related to interaction of global cooling and tectonic changes in East Africa
Professor Mark Maslin has published a new theory on the causes of early human evolution. The paper argues that the geological record of the last 5 million years demonstrates how both local and global influences can lead to extremely rapid environmental change.
Mark has also been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts, and become the Science Advisor to the Global Cool Foundation.
