This SPAFA SESH will explore two prominent extinct species of archaic humans discovered in Southeast Asia, the Homo floresiensis and the Denisovans. Dr Debbie Argue‘s presentation will be about the features of Homo floresiensis – to see where this species fits on the human evolutionary tree and to look at the implications this has for our understanding of human evolution. Moreover, Dr Fabrice Demeter will discuss recent findings about the Denisovan DNA extracted from a molar found in northern Laos.
Guest Speakers: Dr Debbie Argue (Australian National University) and Dr Fabrice Demeter (Lundbeck Foundation GeoGenetics Centre)
