Link to this audio Scientists have discovered an exquisitely preserved ancient primate fossil that they believe forms a crucial "missing link" (http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2009/may/19/fossil-ida-missing-link) between our own evolutionary branch of life and the rest of the animal kingdom.
The 47m-year-old primate – named Ida – has been hailed as the fossil equivalent of a "Rosetta Stone" for understanding the critical early stages of primate evolution (http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/evolution).
