The Hominid Corridor Research Project
began its long-term study within the Malawi Rift in 1983. The initiating focus was the geographic position of South-East Africa and its relation to the origin and dispersion of Plio-Pleistocene faunas.
The recovery of two different hominids from similarly aged localities in Malawi confirm a coexistence of earliest Homo and Paranthropus in southeastern Africa. Our scenario expresses the association between faunal turnover and climate change with significant developments during human evolution. is currently presenting the 2001 expedition to Uraha / Malawi and parts of the earlier research in the Malema area.
