Ian Tattersall

Ian Tattersall, a Curator Emeritus at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, is a paleoanthropologist and primate biologist of long experience. He has conducted fieldwork in places as diverse as Yemen, Vietnam, and Madagascar, and besides being a prolific contributor to the technical literature in these areas, he has written widely for the public on topics ranging from the biology of the lemurs of Madagascar, and the natural history of wine, to the evolution of humankind. His current laboratory research involves trying to understand how human beings acquired their highly unusual cognitive system, and his current fieldwork involves practical research for a forthcoming book on the Natural History of Beer. His most recently published book (with Peter Nevraumont) is "Hoax. A History of Deception: 5000 Years of Fakes, Forgeries, and Fallacies."
