Pat Shipman, Ph.D., is a writer and paleoanthropologist who writes about science and evolution for non-scientists.
The Animal Connection is a blog based on ongoing research (mine and others') and personal observations about human evolution, the human animal, and our deep connection to other animals. I want to explore why animals matter in human life and what has shaped the human species.
