Tim WhiteTim White

NCSE congratulates Tim White on his inclusion in Time magazine's list of "the people who most affect our world" for 2010. White was honored for his work in paleoanthropology, particularly the recently described "Ardi" — Ardipithecus ramidus. Sean B. Carroll wrote, "'Ardi,' a 4-ft. female, transforms our picture of our early ancestors. Ardi was at home in trees, but she also walked upright. A woodland dweller, she refutes the belief that modern posture was an adaptation to living on the savanna. Gaps in human history remain, but White has filled a big one." A Supporter of NCSE, White is Professor of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley.
