      Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia. The pioneering discovery of hominid (man or manlike) fossils in the Rift Valley, East African Man, was made in The recent cycle of discoveries began when a joint American and French expedition initiated work in the lower Omo Valley in Ethiopia, just north of Lake Rudolf (now called Lake Turkana). INTRODUCTION. The fossil sites of the Awash Valley, Ethiopia, have produced late Miocene to Pleistocene faunas, including human ancestors. To the north and east of Hadar lies the fossiliferous Ledi-Geraru area (), which was first explored in the s by the International Afar Research Expedition (IARE).Since , the Ledi-Geraru Research Project (LGRP) has explored the Lee Adoyta Basin

      Introduction. Rodent fossils are found in many Plio‐Pleistocene fossil‐bearing localities within southern Africa (Winkler et al. ), and are often used for reconstructing past environments (e.g., Avery , , a, b, , ; Cartmill ; De Graaff ; Matthews et al. , ; Thackeray ; Thackeray and Avery ).Rodent fossils are considered particularly This volume presents the work of researchers at many sites spanning the East African Pliocene. The authors take a broad approach that seeks to compare paleoenvironmental and paleoecological patterns across localities and among various taxonomic groups. This volume aims to synthesize large amounts of faunal data, and to present the evolution of East African vertebrates in the context of
