At Sci.News: Human Bipedalism May Have Evolved in Trees, Study Says

The “mystery” of “why humans alone amongst the apes first began to walk on two feet,” and “why these chimpanzees spend so much time in the trees” presents yet another disconnect between the expectations of evolutionary theory and reality.
