Jane Goodall changed the way we look at primates and at ourselves. Her generations long study of Chimpanzees revolutionized our understanding of our genetic forebears. Her observations of the use of tools, the hunting of other, smaller species of monkeys, and the familial relationships all laid the groundwork for a new paradigm in the Human-Primate relationship.

A new book, "The Jane Effect" charts the impact of her work and celebrity on the study of primates and how we view nature. 

Guest:

Jane Goodall will be at an event this evening for Trinity University and Trinity University Press
