So, in New Scientist's final analysis, while "Ida is a remarkably complete specimen that promises to teach us a great deal about the biology of some of the earliest and least human-like of all known primates, the Eocene
adapiforms," the fossil "is not a 'missing link'--at least not between anthropoids and more primitive primates.
