Last month we featured a blog post by Leakey Foundation grantee Samantha Porter. She and her team had recently published an article entitled “A Simple Photogrammetry Rig for the Reliable Creation of 3D Artifact Models in the Field” in the journal Advances in Archaeological Practice. She was nice enough introduce the article to our readers, describing the technique and the importance of “developing… more »
Elizabeth Hadly’s Being Human talk, “Earth’s Tipping Point” is just around the corner on April 19, 2016 at Public Works in San Francisco. Hadly will explore how studying living and fossil animals can reveal human impacts on evolutionary and ecological systems. What makes her such an exciting speaker on this topic?
This week Paddy Moore and H. Gregory of The Leakey Foundation's grants department are in Atlanta for the annual Paleoanthropology Society and the American Association of Physical Anthropologists conferences being held in the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
George M. Leader of the University of Pennsylvania describes the importance of long term archaeological research at South Africa’s Cantee Kopje, one of many world heritage sites threatened by diamond mining.
Archaeologists working in South Africa are fighting a war on multiple fronts. While the whole world continues its love affair with its favorite stone, the diamond, archaeologists are fighting… more »
Genevieve Housman is a PhD candidate from Arizona State University. She was awarded a Leakey Foundation Research Grant during our fall 2015 cycle for her project entitled “Assessment of DNA methylation patterns in primate skeletal tissues.”
My research centers on understanding how epigenetic changes contribute to physical differences in primates. Within primate… more »
Julie Lesnik was awarded a Leakey Foundation Research Grant during our fall 2015 cycle for her project entitled "An evaluation of termite-associated hydrocarbon signatures as an influence on prey selectivity and an ecological signal for chimpanzees and Olduvai hominins."
Corinne Ackermann is a PhD candidate from the Université de Neuchâtel. She was awarded a Leakey Foundation Research Grant for her project entitled "Social bonds and oxytocin in wild juvenile chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)."
Last year we introduced you to Samantha Porter who received a Leakey Foundation Research Grant in the fall of 2014. Recently Porter and her team published an article describing their photogrammetry technique for creating 3D artifact models. She was kind enough to share some insights (and 3D models) with us!
