Biografie (woord)

Richard F. Kay is Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology, and Earth and Ocean Sciences at Duke University, North Carolina, where he has worked since 1973. He has edited 5 books and authored more than 200 research papers on primate paleontology, functional anatomy, adaptations, and phylogenetics. He is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (USA).


'… the first detailed treatment of the vertebrate faunal sequence at Gran Barranca, providing important new evidence about biotic diversity and evolution in the native species … Academic researchers and advanced students in vertebrate paleontology, geochronology, sedimentology and paleoprimatology will value this wealth of new information.' The Eggs EGU Newsletter (
