He was Professor at the College de France, which is considered to be France’s most prestigious research establishment.

Richard Dawkins makes the following observation in The Ancestor’s Tale: “Incidentally, I don’t know what to make of the fact that in his native France, Yves Coppens is widely cited as the discoverer of Lucy, even as the ‘father’ of Lucy.

In the English-speaking world, this important discovery is universally attributed to Donald Johanson”
