Homo floresiensis

this week's issue of Nature features a special on the discovery of a new species of the genus Homo on a remote Indonesian island named Flores - hence the name Homo floresiensis. NPR carried a special today on morning edition - check it out here ...

a fascinating discovery ... especially considering that this species was alive about 13000 years ago. as it turns out, prashant already has a blog entry titled The Hobbits from Flores - certainly something LOTR fans can identify with.
