A set of Nature papers was just published on a new find from Woranso-Mille, Ethiopia where Naomi works. Naomi contributed to the paleoenvironmental reconstructions published in Saylor et al. 2019. Check out the UM News Release, a CNN article and a detailed description of the find and its significance from cmnh.org (and check out the video!). Naomi is continuing her work at Woranso-Mille. There’s lots to do to reconstruct the paleoecology of these hominins and other mammals and there’s a great team in place to make the work happen.
