Jane Goodall set out to Tanzania to study wild chimpanzees by sitting amongst them, uncovering discoveries about primate behavior that have continued to shape scientific discourse. She is a highly respected member of the world scientific community.
Jane Goodall connects to Anthropology because she studies the life style of the animals way of life.
Mary Leakey further helped to unravel mystery surrounding the origins of humankind with her 1959 find: That July, Mary discovered the partial skull of an early human ancestor. It showed that this species was equipped with a small brain but massive teeth and jaws, and muscles so large they had to be anchored to a ridge at the top of the skull. It was later determined the creature was nearly 2 million years old, showing how long the species had been in Africa.
Mary Leakey connects to Paleontology as she discovers the ancient life through the finding of bones.
In 1924, Dart learned of a fossil baboon skull that had been found at a nearby limestone quarry at Taung, and asked to be sent any more bones or fossils that were found. The first two crates arrived in November of that year, and Dart found a fossil cast of the inside of a primate skull, which fitted into another lump of stone which possibly contained a face. It took Dart about a month to remove enough stone to reveal the face and jaw of a young fossil primate, which would be nicknamed the Taung baby. Dart considered the fossil intermediate between apes and humans, and quickly wrote a paper for Nature.
Raymond connects to Paleontology by discovering the life between apes and humans with the skulls.http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/homs/rdart.html
