Does anyone know why exactly this is considered to be so significant? As I understand it, there's already very clear fossil evidence to link humans back to the point at which we branched off from chimpanzee evolution - and even if there wasn't, the link between us and our closest ancestors (chimpanzees) would be an ape from about 5 million years ago, not a lemur from 47 million years ago. I understand that such a well-preserved fossil is a great way to learn about early primate diet, physiology, and even evolution - but what makes it so relevant to human evolution?

It's the link we didn't previously have in fossil evidence between us and animals from outside the great ape family.

    Dangling participles are not something up with which I will put.
