The Current State of Evolutionary Theory (Omnivore)

From Bookforum's Omnivore blog, this collection of links looks at current thinking in the world of evolutionary theory.

One addition from today's news: 300,000-Year-Old Hearth Uncovered in Israel, via Live Science
It's not entirely clear who was cooking at Qesem Cave. A study published about three years ago in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology described teeth found in the cave dating to between 400,000 and 200,000 years ago. The authors speculated the teeth might have belonged to modern humans (Homo sapiens), Neanderthals or perhaps a different species, though they noted they couldn't draw a solid conclusion from their evidence.
Cool . . . .
