Quotes

...When it came to animals, if it moved, they'd eat it, from mice to mammoths, and they wouldn't cavil at a turtle. "This research shows that the Neanderthals knew how to exploit all the resources at their disposal" he says
...suggest that species of early Homo were more flexible in their dietary choices than other species," said Aiello, according to the news release. "Their flexible diet—probably containing meat—was aided by stone tool-assisted foraging that allowed our ancestors to exploit a range of resources."
"The narrative of human evolution that arises from our analyses stresses the importance of adaptability to changing environments, rather than adaptation to any one environment, in the early success of the genus Homo" he added
That said, Jungers adds, "I think this is an enormous undertaking to try to synthesize all this information, much of it in the last decade. And, you know, every new fossil you find sort of requires getting back to the drawing board."
