Organisers of the forthcoming 2009 PSGB Spring meeting to be held at Bournemouth University have announced the latest addition to the growing list of speakers at this prestigious event. Prof Gabriele Macho from University of Bradford, investigates the processes underlying the evolutionary pathways of hominins and their functional adaptations and he'll be appearing at the two-day April event, details of which are outlined below.

In addition, there will also be a public lecture, full details of which are yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to be on the evening of Thursday 16th at around 6pm although this will be finalised closer to the event.
