Source[edit]

The following is an excellent source that talks about the media campaign surrounding this fossil and the issue of science in the media. It's a much better source than most of the news articles presently cited. I don't have time to add the information myself, but someone should.

Picture of the day
Darwinius

Darwinius is a genus of strepsirrhine primates from the middle Eocene epoch. The only known fossil, a juvenile female named Ida, was discovered in 1983 in the Messel pit, Germany. After the amateur excavation the fossil was divided into a slab and partial counterslab, which were sold separately and not reassembled until 2007. Two years later, the species was formally described.
