UA age dates evolution of human brain

UA's professor of geosciences and anthropology Jay Quade [right] is co-author on the new study in Science that found a Homo erectus pelvis had evolved 1.2 million years ago to allow them to give birth to babies with large heads and presumably large brains. The article has captured both the scientific and popular press.

It made the front page of the Tucson Citizen, and was featured in the Arizona Daily Star and Arizona Republic.

It's prominently featured in most of the science news Web sites and is making a splash in foreign language newspapers worldwide. See how it's being covered at Knight Science Journalism Tracker.
