On the record ... with Dan Gebo
DeKALB – Northern Illinois University Professor Daniel Gebo is one of seven specialists throughout the world who are researching a discovery that will change the study of primate evolution.
Earlier this month, the group, which includes his wife, Northwestern University Professor Marian Dagosto, announced that a complete 55-million-year old primate fossil had been discovered by a Chinese farmer in 2003. The fossil, named Archicebus achilles, is the oldest complete primate skeleton ever found. It indicates a common ancestor for two major lineages of primates and shows that primate life may have originated in Asia, and not Africa, as previously thought.
A biological anthropologist/primatologist with interests in anatomy and primate evolution, Gebo teaches courses in primate and human anatomy and evolution, as well as introductory physical anthropology.
