Christopher Joyce http://wvxu.org en Dance Of Human Evolution Was Herky-Jerky, Fossils Suggest http://wvxu.org/post/dance-human-evolution-was-herky-jerky-fossils-suggest A trio of anthropologists has decided it's time to rewrite the story of human evolution.<p>That narrative has always been a work in progress, because almost every time scientists dig up a new fossil bone or a stone tool, it adds a new twist to the story. Discoveries lead to new arguments over the details of how we became who we are.<p>But anthropologists generally agree on this much: A little more than 2 million years ago in Africa, the human lineage emerged.

Not much action going on — most reptiles and other coldblooded creatures take on the temperature of their surroundings, so they tend to be most sluggish when the outside temperature is cool. The monkeys, however, act like they've had one too many cappuccinos.

Wildlife often can't adjust. Among the species that are struggling is one of the American West's most highly prized fish — the <a href="http://www.nrmsc.usgs.gov/research/WCT">cutthroat trout</a>.<p>In springtime, you can find young cutthroats in the tiny streams of Montana's Shields Basin.
