Example text

The partial skeleton was from a very short individual with a cranial capacity below that of smaller Australopithecines. Brown et al. argued that this is a new species, Homo floriensis, and suggested that the find is highly significant for human evolution in general and particularly that in Asia. If the attribution of these remains to a new species of Homo at such a late date with such a small cranial capacity is confirmed, it will indeed be a very influential find. Further examination and analysis of the material is at a very early stage and we look forward to robust analysis and discussion of its significance.
