Fossil evidence of Miocene apes from several localities in Europe suggest a genetic connection with the African ape and human lineage. While a European origin of this lineage may seem surprising, it helps to explain the appearance of several key adaptations of the great apes, including upright posture and increased brain size. In this talk David Begun discusses the evidence for African apes in Europe and the possible local selective pressures that lead to these great ape evolutionary innovations.
