  • "Ardi" - as the fossil has become known - is clearly a human ancestor and her descendants did not grow up to be chimpanzees or other apes, the researchers report in the journal Science.

  • At 4.4 million years old, Ardipithecus ramidus -- just call her Ardi -- is the new belle of the evolutionary ball. - Articles related to Did we have sex with Neanderthals?

  • The fossil, known as Ardi, topped a list of the 10 greatest scientific advances for the year, which also featured the discovery of water on the moon and the use of ultra-thin carbon atom sheets in experimental electronic devices.

    Raw Story

  • Scientists say a 4. 4-million-year-old fossil called Ardi - short for ardipithecus ramidus - is descended from the "missing link," or the last common ancestor between humans and apes.


  • The evidence to support our relationship to the great apes was only * increased* by the discovery and extensive study of "Ardi".
