Quote: Ardipithecus alert!

Owen Lovejoy, quoted in an Ann Gibbons news piece:

To resolve this debate [about the style of early hominid bipedalism], says anatomist Owen Lovejoy of Kent State University in Ohio, researchers should also look at the pelvis, back, foot, and ankle of other early hominins, still under analysis.

In other words, "Nyah, nyah!"
