  • Homo
  • That leads to some curious questions of interbreeding with other Homo species and curiosities about the presence of modern humans that did not 'act' modern… In other words, the archaeological record isn't quite on the same page. (anthropology.net)
  • The U-series dates on localized thin flowstone formations bracket the hominin specimens between 81 and 101 ka, currently the most narrow time span for all AMH beyond 45 ka in China, if the assignment of the hominin teeth to modern Homo sapiens holds. (blogspot.com)

  • jawbone
  • Scientists on Thursday announced the discovery of a fossilized human jawbone in a collapsed cave in Israel that they said is between 177,000 and 194,000 years old. (nytimes.com)
  • Dr. Hublin said that by concluding the jawbone came from a "modern human," the authors were simply saying that the ancient person was morphologically more closely related to us than to Neanderthals. (nytimes.com)
  • Dr. Hershkovitz and Mina Weinstein-Evron, an archaeologist at the University of Haifa, felt that the jawbone looked modern, but they needed to confirm their hunch. (nytimes.com)
  • The jawbone is the oldest directly dated modern (European) human fossil. (wordpress.com)
  • Herto

  • cave
  • To this scenario of the possible early presence of modern humans in China, here we report evidence from Huanglong Cave, a recently discovered Late Pleistocene hominin fossil- and stone artifact-bearing site, and discuss its impact on the mode of recent human evolution in eastern Asia. (blogspot.com)
  • The age and morphology of the Zhiren Cave human remains support a modern human emergence scenario for East Asia involving dispersal with assimilation or populational continuity with gene flow. (blogspot.com)

  • For instance, Nordborg ( 10 ) showed that the differences between Neandertal's and modern mitochondrial sequences are sufficient to rule out random mating between them, but not more complicated models of interbreeding. (pnas.org)

  • Although many of these harvested areas have regrown, poor forest management practices at the turn of the 20th century have reduced by half the amount of carbon that modern forests can store, said Christopher Gough, the study's lead author and a postdoctoral researcher in evolution, ecology and organismal biology at Ohio State University.

  • findings
  • In light of results from other ancient DNA studies that indicate how DNA survival is unlikely in samples, which are recovered from warm environments and are relatively old (e.g. more than 100 000 years), these findings come as a great surprise. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • relatively
  • On the other hand, some modern varieties and landraces have been identified that have relatively low contents of both epitopes. (springer.com)
  • hypothesis
  • This hypothesis does not seem to differ radically from Relethford's ( 4 ) view of multiregional evolution, whereby the Neandertal's contribution to the modern European gene pool may have been small, yet nonzero. (pnas.org)

  • presence
  • To analyze whether wheat breeding contributed to the increase of the prevalence of CD, we have compared the genetic diversity of gluten proteins for the presence of two CD epitopes (Glia-α9 and Glia-α20) in 36 modern European wheat varieties and in 50 landraces representing the wheat varieties grown up to around a century ago. (springer.com)
  • Overall, the presence of the Glia-α9 epitope was higher in the modern varieties, whereas the presence of the Glia-α20 epitope was lower, as compared to the landraces. (springer.com)
