As mentioned, Hominidae was originally the name given to the family of humans and their (extinct) close relatives, with the other great apes (that is, the orangutans, gorillas, and chimpanzees) all being placed in a separate family, the Pongidae. However, that definition eventually made Pongidae paraphyletic because at least one great ape species (the chimpanzees) proved to be more closely related to humans than to other great apes. Most taxonomists today encourage monophyletic groups-this would require, in this case, the use of Pongidae to be restricted to just one closely related grouping. Thus, many biologists now assign Pongo (as the subfamily Ponginae) to the family Hominidae. The taxonomy shown here follows the monophyletic groupings according to the modern understanding of human and great ape relationships. Humans and close relatives including the tribes Hominini and Gorillini form the subfamily Homininae (see classification graphic below). (A few researchers go so far as to refer the ...

GREAT apes in captivity are subject to contraceptive regimes to control fertility in an environment that only approximates their habitat in the wild. The clinical caseload of one author (Masters N, personal communication) suggested that captive female great apes (Hominidae) experience a high incidence of pathological lesions of the reproductive tract and that some exhibit stereotypic or other behaviours indicative of stress. Understanding the effects of contraception and/or the physical environment on captive great apes is critical if the authors are to maximise reproductive management.. Various reproductive tract pathological lesions have been reported in non-human primates (NHPs). Congenital abnormalities occur with a similar incidence to the human being, affecting 0.3 to 0.9 per cent of births (Peterson and others 1997). In addition, endometriosis and adenomyosis produce pathological lesions and clinical signs similar to those experienced by women, including reduced fertility and pain ...
The classification of the great apes has been revised several times in the last few decades. Originally, the group was restricted to humans and their extinct relatives, with the other great apes being placed in a separate family, the Pongidae. This definition is still used by many anthropologists and by lay persons. However, that definition makes Pongidae paraphyletic because at least one great ape species appears to be more closely related to humans than other great apes. Most taxonomists nowadays encourage monophyletic groups so this would require the use of Pongidae to be restricted to one of the great ape groups only. Thus many biologists consider Hominidae to include Pongidae as the subfamily Ponginae, or restrict the latter to the orangutans and their extinct relatives like Gigantopithecus. The taxonomy shown here follows the monophyletic groupings according to the two theories of human and great ape relationships.. Especially close human relatives form a subfamily, the Homininae. Some ...

Introduction. One of the earliest derived features of the hominin clade is canine tooth size reduction, with a decrease in sexual dimorphism in canine crown height, and the loss of maxillary canine tooth honing against the lower third premolar that occurs in most primate species. Canine tooth crown reduction was originally thought to have first appeared in Australopithecus,1 but now is known to have characterised even earlier taxa - Sahelanthropus,2 Orrorin,3 Ardipithecus kadabba4,5,6 and Ardipithecus ramidus.7,8,9,10 However, the morphology of the Australopithecus canine-premolar complex is derived morphologically relative to these earlier hominins. Furthermore, canine tooth form appears to have changed throughout the early evolution of Australopithecus.9,11,12 The pattern and timing of canine evolution is significant for understanding early hominin evolution because alterations in canine tooth size and dimorphism constitute evidence of social and/or dietary adaptations.13,14. The earliest ...

Homo sapiens idaltu Homo sapiens sapiens †Homo neanderthalensis? †Homo rhodesiensis? Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man") is the binomial nomenclature (also known as the scientific name) for the human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Modern humans are the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, which differentiates them from what has been argued to be their direct ancestor, Homo sapiens idaltu. The ingenuity and adaptability of Homo sapiens has led to its becoming, arguably, the most influential species on the planet; it is for this reason that it is currently deemed of least concern on the IUCN.[1] The binomial name Homo sapiens was coined by Carl Linnaeus (1758).[2] The Latin noun homō (genitive hominis) means "man, human being". Subspecies of H. sapiens include Homo sapiens idaltu and the only extant subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens. Some sources show Neanderthals ...
The basal position within the Hominidae of the two thick-enamelled hominoids studied in this paper is supported by the retention of several primitive, kenyapithecine-like traits (anterior position of the zygomatic root, strong mandibular torus and extreme reduction of the maxillary sinus) in this taxa (Moyà-Solà et al. 2009b). According to this hypothesis, kenyapithecin afropithecids (Kenyapithecus and Griphopithecus) would be recognized as hominids sister taxa. This phylogenetic hypothesis had been previously suggested by other researchers (Pickford 1986; Harrison 1992; Harrison & Rook 1997; McCrossin & Benefit 1997; Begun 2001, 2005, 2007; Güleç & Begun 2003), and some authors had even included Kenyapithecus and Griphopithecus as a distinct subfamily (Kenyapithecinae) within the Hominidae (Ward & Duren 2002; Cameron 2004). That would imply two separate dispersal events from Africa into Eurasia (one for hylobatids and the other for the ancestors of hominids), and a third dispersal event ...

We report on the paleopathological analysis of the partial skeleton of the late Pliocene hominin species Australopithecus africanus Stw 431 from Sterkfontein, South Africa. A previous study noted the presence of lesions on vertebral bodies diagnosed as spondylosis deformans due to trauma. Instead, we suggest that these lesions are pathological changes due to the initial phases of an infectious disease, brucellosis. The macroscopic, microscopic and radiological appearance of the lytic lesions of the lumbar vertebrae is consistent with brucellosis. The hypothesis of brucellosis (most often associated with the consumption of animal proteins) in a 2.4 to 2.8 million year old hominid has a host of important implications for human evolution. The consumption of meat has been regarded an important factor in supporting, directing or altering human evolution. Perhaps the earliest (up to 2.5 million years ago) paleontological evidence for meat eating consists of cut marks on animal remains and stone tools that
Human remains, some as recent as 15 thousand years, from Liang Bua (LB) on the Indonesian island of Flores have been attributed to a new species, Homo floresiensis. The definition includes a mosaic of features, some like modern humans (hence derived: genus Homo), some like modern apes and australopithecines (hence primitive: not species sapiens), and some unique (hence new species: floresiensis). Conversely, because only modern humans (H. sapiens) are known in this region in the last 40 thousand years, these individuals have also been suggested to be genetic human dwarfs. Such dwarfs resemble small humans and do not show the mosaic combination of the most complete individuals, LB1 and LB6, so this idea has been largely dismissed. We have previously shown that some features of the cranium of hypothyroid cretins are like those of LB1. Here we examine cretin postcrania to see if they show anatomical mosaics like H. floresiensis. We find that hypothyroid cretins share at least 10 postcranial features with
In addition to structural characteristics related to requirements of bipedality, some of the most obvious differences between human and ape skeletons are proportional differences, involving not only the relative lengths of the long bones and trunk but also bone girth and joint surface size directly reflecting the different requirements of weight transfer through human and ape skeletons.15 It is somewhat surprising that Brown et al.10 did not consider these proportions in their discussion on LB1s mode of locomotion. As several of the indices characterizing LB1s lower limb fall within the australopithecine and chimpanzee range of variation (Table 1), might it not follow that LB1s locomotor mode shared features with those predicted for australopithecines, or even those displayed by chimpanzees? What is the relative importance of these and other morphological features in predicting a species mode of locomotion? A comparison of the biomechanical characteristics of bipedality and quadrupedalism ...
Homo habilis (also known as "handy man") is one of the early ancestors of modern man who used primitive stone tools.[1] Their remains have been found in the Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania.[1] They are believed to be about 2 million years old. The flat face and large molars of the Homo habilis resemble the Australopithecus lineage. The brain size of the Homo habilis is about 700 cc (larger than the Australopithecus). An "apelike" (long arms and a small body) body structure was characteristic of the Homo habilis. They are believed to have been about 1.3 metres tall, and weigh about 37 kilograms.[2] There is still a lot of argument between scientists about the species.[1] They can not all agree on the characteristics, or whether it is even a separate species at all.. ...
The microscopic anatomy of dental enamel has been employed in numerous studies of fossil hominin teeth. This research has focused on the use of microstructure, primarily perikymata and, when available, their internal manifestations, in the construction of phylogenetic relationships as well as in the reconstruction of hominin patterns of growth and development. The literature on perikymata numbers and packing as reported over the last 20 years, shows a huge range of variation within modern humans. The variation is so large in fact that virtually every fossil hominin species can be encompassed within the range except for some but not most of the robust australopithecines. The sample of Mousterian level hominins from the site of Qafzeh, in northern Israel represents some of the earliest recognized members of Homo sapiens sapiens. Included in this sample are a number of immature individuals (N = 5) whose permanent incisor crowns have observable perikymata. The number of perikymata on complete and unworn
Lantian County in Shaanxi Province in China, where the ancient Homo erectus fossils were found ( thetourofChina.com).. According to the researchers, the new dating of Lantian Man suggests that Homo erectus moved eastwards in warm period that occurred just after 1.75 million years ago. They may also have followed southern routes from Africa into Asia, as evidenced by the presence of fossils in Indonesia that are only slightly younger (c. 1.5 - 1.6 million years). "The revised age extends its age by about half a million years and makes the Gongwangling site a crucial benchmark in establishing the framework of the origin, migration and dispersal of early man in the Old World", said Robin Dennell of University of Exeter in United Kingdom, "It also provides reasonable evidence for re-evaluating the status of other early and controversial human fossils in China and Java. In addition, this new research rewrites the history of the Lantian hominin and provides additional knowledge of human evolution for ...

Dr. Leslea Hlusko, a professor at UC Berkeley, is a member of a key research project in human evolution. The team has found some of the earliest hominid fossils and, with them, has put forth a bold hypothesis that Ardipithecus ramidus and Australopithecus anamensis are not just two branches on the bushy tree of human relatives, but are instead a single lineage, with Ard. ramidus evolving directly into Au. anamensis. The flipside of Lesleas research, however, lands her about as far as one can get from prospecting for four million year old hominid fossils in Ethiopia. Her alter ego spends its energy taking thousands of incredibly detailed measurements of teeth belonging to a colony of baboons at a hi-tech biomedical research facility in San Antonio, Texas ...
What I hypothesize (and this may change) is that at 45-40K a population different from anatomically modern humans advanced into Europe and Africa from the east. This population was very cerebral: it spoke our languages, had kinship systems and other means of classification, and told lots of myths around their campfires. They relied on soft technologies (bones, snares, etc.) to procure food and build shelters. They replaced Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans but also adopted a lot from their lithic inventory thus creating an illusion of lithic continuity. The origin of these true Homo sapiens sapiens was in America based on the data coming from modern populations (genetics, linguistics, kinship systems and mythological data). (In the end Homo sapiens sapiens is probably an offshoot of Asian Homo erectus that sneaked across the Bering Strait around 100K and speciated there. (An ideal place to speciate, gentlemen, isnt?) At about 50K it migrated back into the Old World as us. For ...

Ive chosen whales: I could have chosen penguins, or turtles, or horses, or, of course, humans. Yes, a "missing link" has been found between humans and apes. In fact, several have. There is Sahelanthropus, an ape which lived around the time that humans and chimpanzees diverged. Then there are the Ardipithecus and Australopithecus ape-men. Then comes the arbitrary line where we start calling them humans: The genus Homo includes, among others, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Homo ergaster, Homo heidelbergensis, Homo neandertalis and Homo sapiens, all of which have several fossil examples.. Its actually not very helpful to talk in terms of "transitional forms". All species are transitional. Humans will probably look very different, if we exist, in a million years time, but we dont feel like a "transitional form" between Homo erectus and future humans. Instead its worth talking about "transitional characteristics" between older species and more recent ones. Tiktaalik, which appears to be an early ...

The boundaries between genera are historically subjective. However, with the advent of phylogenetics (the study of evolutionary relatedness among various groups of organisms as gauged by genetic analysis; also called phylogenetic systematics), it is increasingly common for all taxonomic ranks (at least) below the class level, to be restricted to demonstrably monophyletic groupings, as has been the aim since the advent of evolutionary theory. A group is monophyletic (Greek: "of one race") if it consists of an inferred common ancestor and all its descendants. For example, all organisms in the genus Homo are inferred to have come from the same ancestral form in the family Hominidae, and no other descendants are known. Thus the genus Homo is monophyletic. (A taxonomic group that contains organisms but not their common ancestor is called polyphyletic, and a group that contains some but not all descendants of the most recent common ancestor is called paraphyletic.). Groves (2004) notes that "it is not ...

Greetings fossil lovers, hunters, and/or experts. I read the newbie advisories and understand what they spell out. I am a member of other hobby groups, and therefore understand the frustrations presented by dealing with "drive-by" posters. That said, I may qualify as such a poster, as I am not a fossil hunter. I am, however, a person who is interested in different things, most of them antiquities of various types. Machines for the telling of time, aka watches, are but one of them. I am quite ignorant when it comes to fossils, archeology, anthropology, etc. But I am known to possess good instincts for finding interesting specimens. I believe this may be no exception. If it isnt, well, I wont take it too hard. I found this specimen near the coast in Southern California. It was in an area that was frequented by a local indigenous people known as the Chumash. There is a lot of shell remnants around the bluffs and up to where the Pacific Coast Highway runs between Los Angeles and Ventura. It was ...
The theory of human evolution is taking yet another hit from recent scientific studies, from the first analysis of the Neandertal genome to painstakingly reconstructed Ardipithicus ramidus and Australopithecus sediba remains. The profusion of evolutionarily bias in media reports, however, can make it tricky to uncover the real evidence. What can science actually reveal about each of these and other specimens, as either candidates for human ancestry or as uniquely designed but now extinct creatures?. The journal Science recently compared the draft sequence of the Neandertal genome with the complete sequence of modern humans (and chimpanzees), showing evidence that Neandertals interbred with some anatomically modern humans.1 This came as no surprise to Bible believers, who for decades have interpreted Neandertals as having been fully human creatures with a few unique physical features.2 Many evolutionists have also come to believe this, in light of Neandertals overwhelmingly human-like anatomy, ...
The fact that the Flores skeleton post-dates H. erectus and contains characters similar to unique erectine morphologies of Indonesia (e.g. the double mental foramina in the mandible: Brown, et al. 2004, p. 1058) suggests the Flores skeleton might be a descendant of H. erectus. Since Homo erectus is considered human by a number of creationists (e.g. Lubenow 1992, 2004; Wise 2002, p. 238; Wieland 2004), it is most likely that the Flores skeleton is human.This is where things start to get interesting. Wise turns next to a consideration of human variation. He notes the small stature and small brains size and attributes it to a cessation of brain growth far earlier than in any known human (or H. erectus for that matter). For Wise this means that there are four distinct human morphologies represented by H. erectus, Neanderthals, H. floresiensis, and modern human. Wise then makes a confusing argument about how the decreasing age of attainment of sexual maturity indicates that lifespan is decreasing ...
A new analysis on 4.5 million-year-old partial skeleton of a hominin has revealed a glimpse into the anatomical details of locomotion in human ancestor, Ardipithecus ramidus.
One of the most fascinating episodes in the history of palaeontology is that of Piltdown man, an alleged human ancestor discovered in 1908 at Piltdown in Sussex, England. Formally named  Eoanthropus dawsoni  in 1912, Piltdown man matched early 20 th  century expectations of what a human ancestor might be like. It combined a large brain with an ape-like jaw (therefore confirming ideas that the evolution of big brains led the way in hominin evolution), and it lived in Europe (confirming ideas that hominin evolution was a Eurasian event, the hominins of Africa and tropical Asia being divergent irrelevancies or side-branches). The African australopithecines had yet to be discovered, nor had scarcely any of the wealth of fossil African hominins we know of today.

In more recent times evolutionary biologists and other scientists in the fields of biology and more specifically, anthropology, have postulated that humans have been around in anatomically modern form for approximately 200,000 years[6]. One version of this theory maintains that Homo sapiens evolved from Homo ergaster or Homo erectus, and from other earlier primates. Humans closest living relative is the chimpanzee. However, despite sharing 98.4% of their DNA sequence and a common ancestor six million years ago, the genetic difference between chimpanzees and humans is 10 times greater than between unrelated humans. [7] Humans evolved on the African savannah during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. Bipedalism was one of the first traits that our ancestors developed. This occurred around four million years ago. The recovered remains of "Lucy" (Australopithecus afarensis) suggest to evolutionists that the Australopithecines had developed bipedalism before developing into Homo contrary to popular ...

Australopithecus afarensis (3.6 to 2.9 million years ago). Species Description:. Australopithecus afarensis had a very low forehead, a face that projected far forward (as viewed in profile), and a very prominent brow ridge. A. afarensis is the earliest species for which we have reliable brain and body size estimates, thanks to a rich fossil record for the species. The brain of A. afarensis was about one-third the size of the average modern human brain, or about the same size as a modern apes brain. Males and females varied significantly in body size, with males standing approximately 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 100 pounds and females standing about 3 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 62 pounds. Males also typically had large crests on top of their skulls; females did not. The knee and pelvic bone structure of A. afarensis were very humanlike, leaving no doubt that A. afarensis walked upright. A. afarensis probably inhabited the savannas and open woodlands where they likely found ...

The Pleistocene Epoch in eastern Africa encompasses major events in hominin evolution that include speciation and extinction events within the genera Paranthropus and Homo in the Turkana Basin [1] as well as the advent of the Acheulean technology [2,3]. Important hominin fossils and archaeological sites that are part of this record are preserved in the Nachukui Formation, on the western side of Lake Turkana. Strata of the Nachukui Formation belong to the Omo Group, which also includes the Koobi Fora Formation on the eastern side of Lake Turkana and the Shungura Formation, located along the western side of the Omo River north of Lake Turkana. The Omo Group deposits range in age from approximately 4.3 to 0.7 Ma [4-6]. The Nachukui Formation covers from approximately 4 to 0.7 Ma and is subdivided into eight stratigraphic members in the type area, nearly all of which have a radiometrically dated volcanic tuff at their base. A rich and diverse hominin fossil record from West Turkana includes ...
In the second section Casey tries to cast doubt on the bipedality of Lucy by quoting from a News and Views article by Collard and Aiello. The Collard and Aiello article reports on a "letter" to Nature by Richmond and Strait called Evidence that humans evolved from a knuckle-walking ancestor. In that paper Richmond and Strait claim to do two things. First they provide evidence that Australopithecus anamensis and A. afarensis both share wrist morphology indicative of knuckle-walking. They then argue that knuckle-walking is a synapomorphy that links the African apes and humans. Once upon a time, and not all that long ago, the relationships between chimps, gorillas, and humans was considered an unresolved trichotomy. Quite a few people argued that chimps and gorillas were more closely related to each other than either was to humans. Others argued, based on morphological and genetic evidence, that chimps and humans were more closely related. Richmond and Straits results took away a crucial piece of ...

Im not convinced that its cooking that made us human. Why? Because the slope of the brain expansion curve has been set off before the evidence of large fire exploiting. Second, DHA , the key nutrient foe brain expansion starts to be degradated at 60 C degrees, and if its true that a large consumption of that made us human it suggests that its not a burned steak that allowed such brain expansion and far less cooked starch. The same error, its more about nutrients than calories themselves and starchy tubers are just backup foods when meat was not available rather than an inportant key nutrient for brain expansion. Tubers dont have the nutrient density of meat, especially organ meats as described by the table from Lalonde, and furthermore they lack of DHA, B12 and aminoacids like taurin, carnitine, carnosine etc…how can they made us human? And the last evidence is that at the transition of agriculture every stuff was cooked, but starch from grains was not enough to sustain big brains, ...

The brain of modern humans is an evolutionary and developmental outlier: At birth, it has the size of an adult chimpanzee brain and expands by a factor of 2 during the first postnatal year. Large neonatal brain size and rapid initial growth contrast with slow maturation, which extends well into adolescence. When, how, and why this peculiar pattern of brain ontogeny evolved and how it is correlated with structural changes in the brain are key questions of paleoanthropology. Because brains and their ontogenies do not fossilize, indirect evidence from fossil hominin endocasts needs to be combined with evidence from modern humans and our closest living relatives, the great apes. New fossil finds permit a denser sampling of hominin endocranial morphologies along ontogenetic and evolutionary time lines. New brain imaging methods provide the basis for quantifying endocast-brain relationships and tracking endocranial and brain growth and development noninvasively. Combining this evidence with ever-more ...
Fossils of many species are common all the way across the landscape," Ambrose said. "But this species is missing in action from the east side of the distribution.". Isotopic analysis of teeth found on the site gave a more complete picture of the habitat of the animals that lived and died there, Ambrose said.. "The distribution of plant carbon isotope ratios conveniently separates out grasslands from forests," he said. "And it also separates out grazing animals, like zebras, from browsing animals that eat the leaves off of trees, like giraffes.". The distribution of the fossil browsers and grazers echoed that of the habitat, he said.. "On the west we find lots of Ardipithecus fossils and theyre associated with a lot of woodland and forest animals," he said. "And then theres a break; Ardipithecus and most of the monkeys that live in trees disappear, and grass-eating animals become more abundant.". The carbon isotope ratios of the Ardipithecus teeth also tell the story of a woodland creature, he ...

Phylogeny Of Australopithecus Essay, Research Paper This essay will be a report on my phylogeny of the australopithecus. It will be base on data gained from the analysis of the dental morphology of the austraopithecuss, the structure of the head, the dates and brain size which correspond to the each australopithecine all in relation to the chimpanzee and the modern human.
An article in the current issue of Nature (here) reminded me that 50 years have passed since Louis Leakey, Phillip Tobias and John Napier published their controversial paper, "A new species of the genus Homo from Olduvai Gorge" (here). Until then most fossil hominins had been accomodated in the genera Australopithecus and Pithecanthropus. Whether or not the new fossils justified the title of Leakeys paper was disputed then and remains contentious. ...
Peking Man," a human ancestor who lived in China between roughly 200,000 and 750,000 years ago, was a wood-working, fire-using, spear-hafting hominid ... these hominids, a form of Homo erectus, appear to have been quite meticulous about their clothing, using stone tools to soften and depress animal hides."[20]. "Peking Man ... Homo erectus pekinensis, is an example of Homo erectus.

Renowned paleoartist John Gurche brings the traditional techniques of figure drawing and anatomical art to the portrayal of our hominin ancestors. The result is a visual record of the evolving human form that feels alive in a way no scientific illustration could match. While science provides an underpinning to Gurches art, his works primary purpose is to forge an aesthetic connection to the hominins that preceded us on Earth, capturing their humanity. With essays by leading authorities, Lost Anatomies carries the story of human evolution from apes and early hominins; to Australopithecus; to archaic Homo sapiens, including Homo erectus; to derived Homo sapiens, including Neanderthals and other species that are our most recent ancestors ...
1600 words Back in October, I wrote that floresiensis is either descended from Erectus or habilis, since those were the only two hominins in the region. Yesterday a study was published titled The affinities of Homo floresiensis based on phylogenetic analyses of cranial, dental, and postcranial characters (Argue et al, 2017), in which Argue et al argue that…

Gona has turned out to be a productive dig site for Semaw. In 1997 Semaw and colleagues reported the oldest known stone tools used by ancestral humans. Then in 2004 he coauthored a paper summarizing Gonas geological properties and the sites cornucopia of hominid fossils spanning several million years. At the time, Science gave the article an "Editors Choice" recognition. In 2005 he and colleagues published an article in Nature announcing the discovery of Ardipithecus ramidus, one of the earliest ancestral hominids, dating between 4.3 and 4.5 million years ago ...
When and where did modern humans evolve? This question remains the focus of much scientific controversy. Traditionally, answers were sought in the human fossil record, which tells us that upright bipedal hominids who made stone tools have occupied much of the temperate Old World for 0.5-1.5 million years. The earlier forms of these hominids are usually called Homo erectus, whereas the later forms, with larger brains and more sophisticated tool kits, are called Archaic Homo sapiens. The Neandertals of Europe are the most familiar of these archaics. In Europe they were replaced by modern humans over several millennia about 40,000 years ago. In Indonesia archaics may have persisted until as recently as 25,000 years ago (1). Although fossils provide unique and invaluable information, they are very limited in quantity and quality. Huge gaps remain in the human fossil record, and it is difficult to assess, for example, whether there was continuity between archaic and modern humans. Genetic data, in ...
There is an ongoing debate as to whether the Late Pleistocene hominid fossils from the island of Flores, Indonesia, represent a diminutive, small-brained new species, Homo floresiensis, or pathological modern humans. We note that individuals with MOPD II have several features in common with Homo floresiensis, including an adult height of 100 cm, grossly normal intelligence despite severely restricted brain size, absence of a sloping microcephalic morphology, and a number of minor morphological features including facial asymmetry, small chin, abnormal teeth, and subtle bony anomalies of the hand and wrist. Given these similarities, it is tempting to hypothesize that the Indonesian diminutive hominids were in fact humans with MOPD II. With the identification of the genetic basis of MOPD II, this hypothesis may soon be testable. ...
This is something that is often missed by the popular press and creationists: fossils are rare and complete fossils are even rarer. And, unlike the kind of archaeological work that goes on in neolithic or bronze age sites, human fossil remains are usually found in concretions-limestone or some other hard rock-and are very hard to extricate cleanly. In the case of Ardipithecus ramidus (or "Ardi"), the extraction took years because the bones were so brittle. Jamie Shreeve writes in National Geographic that as soon as bones were removed, they were doused with hardener to make sure they did not fall apart. Then, once they are removed comes the equally arduous task of trying to reconstitute the pieces. Complete skulls are rare and even the most complete ones have to be put back together. Once we have them, they are great tools for discovering how we came to be and the stages that got us here. But it takes a lot of work just to get to that point. It will be nice when we get the second A. sediba ...
An overview of human evolution, summarizing current thinking and describing the fossil evidence for Australopithecus and Homo. Also refutes many creationist arguments about human evolution.
Fossil mandibular elements assigned to the taxon Australopithecus sediba were found at Malapa, South Africa. The mandibular elements have since been used to create a fully reconstructed version of the mandible of the animal. In order to better understand how fossil species separate with jaw bones an analysis will be done on extant species of great apes, gibbons, and humans. If the jaw bones do separate as expected it will be possible to then diagnose species based on jaw bone data, particularly if only data from one of the jaw bones is available ...

Recent finds near Lake Turkana indicate that hominids like Australopithecus anamensis lived in the area which is now Kenya from around 4.1 million years ago.[1] More recently, discoveries in the Tugen Hills dated to approximately 6 million years ago precipitated the naming of a new species, the Orrorin tugenensis..

This is a wonderful time to be studying human origins. Scholars used to think that there was a slow steady progression of one single species after another becoming more and more human-like through time. Thats not the way it was at all. Although these fossils give no evidence for when H. naledi went extinct, its clear it was our contemporary in Africa for at least a little while. There also were at least several other hominin species outside of Africa at that same time. Some members of our species migrated out of Africa to Eurasia about 70,000 years ago, only to find that Homo neanderthalensis and the related, but distinctive Denisovans were already there. At the same time, the primitive diminutive species, H. florisiensis, occupied an island in Indonesia, and H. erectus was in eastern Asia. Meanwhile, back in Africa, we know from genetic evidence that, in addition to H. naledi, another unknown hominin species was present and interbred with our species as recently as 30,000 years ago. So our ...
It [Levallois blade] requires a conceptual leap that allows you to envision the desired tool in the flint core before you even start shaping it," Barkai says.. The Levallois style of blade is far more complicated to manufacture than merely banging a rock into shape and is generally considered to be beyond the cognitive abilities of Homo erectus. It is hoped that the extremely early habitation dates at Jaljulia will be confirmed by the more accurate dating process known as optically stimulated luminescence (calculation of the last time grains of sediment were exposed to light). Confirmation of the dating may well indicate that some form of archaic Homo sapiens or Homo heidelbergensis (ancestral Neanderthals) were present in the Levantine region long before scientists thought.. There is the intriguing possibility that the blades manufactured at Jaljulia were the work of the direct ancestors of modern humans living between the time of the first recognisable Homo sapiens and the divergence from the ...
In a report being published Friday in the journal Science, Dr. Berger, 44, and a team of scientists said the fossils from the boy and a woman were a surprising and distinctive mixture of primitive and advanced anatomy and thus qualified as a new species of hominid, the ancestors and other close relatives of humans. It has been named Australopithecus sediba.. The species sediba, which means fountain or wellspring in Sotho, strode upright on long legs, with human-shaped hips and pelvis, but still climbed through trees on apelike arms. It had the small teeth and more modern face of Homo, the genus that includes modern humans, but the relatively primitive feet and "tiny brain" of Australopithecus, Dr. Berger said.. Geologists estimated that the individuals lived 1.78 million to 1.95 million years ago, probably closer to the older date, when australopithecines and early species of Homo were contemporaries. ...
In the 2 October issue of Science (the "Ardipithecus ramidus issue"), there was a Perspective (authored by Matt Kaeberlein and Pankaj Kapahi) and a Report (authored by Colin Selman and his colleagues) on recent findings in anti-aging biology.. Since the late 1980s, researchers have found that caloric restriction (CR) (reduction in caloric intake while maintaining essential nutrients) slows aging in a variety of organisms-yeasts, nematodes, fruit flies, mice, and most recently rhesus macaques. In the recently published 20-year study in rhesus macaques, CR not only increased lifespan, but also delayed the onset of a suite of aging-related disease conditions-diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and brain atrophy. This parallels the studies with other organisms.. Researchers who have been studying the CR model have been attempting to elucidate the mechanisms by which CR works to slow the aging process and to retard aging-related disease. They hope to find targets for drugs to mimic the effects ...

FROM OMMBID CHAPTER 5:. CONCLUSION. The term Homo modificans is used in this chapter to describe a feature of Homo sapiens sapiens; it recognizes that human beings purposefully modify their experience. In the 20th century, one result has been an increase in the heritability of our diseases. Accordingly, the relative importance of genetic causes in human disease is relatively greater than it was in the past. As our ability to recognize and identify those diseases and their causes increases, our ability to treat them successfully should also increase.. General principles for the treatment of genetic disease were established a generation ago. Those principles identify modalities that, in practice, modify the effect of a mutant gene in the affected individual. Although the principles of treatment are reasonably well understood, consistent and successful application of those principles in practice for many of these disorders remains elusive.. The goal of treatment for genetic diseases, in every case, ...
Java Man was the name given to fossilized remains discovered in Indonesia over a century ago. Subsequently defined by evolutionists as Homo erectus, an extinct hominid, its placement in human evolutionary history has mystified evolutionary anthropologists.. New research is causing even more problems surrounding H. erectus. The Java remains were dated in 1996 at around 30,000 years old. But that figure may have been off by 500,000 years.. At the time, the younger age required a rewrite of human evolution, since it meant that H. erectus co-existed with humans for thousands of years instead of having lived prior to and in transition toward modern man. The age of 50,000 to 30,000 years was determined by measuring radioactive elements in the fossil-bearing sediment, according to ScienceNews.1. The updated age of roughly 550,000 years--derived from its geological context--is eighteen times older than the first. The new analysis was presented April 14, 2010, at the annual meeting of the American ...
Wolpoff was on to something. Even if the original Out of Africa proponents did not mean to do so, there was a tendency to remove "higher faculties" from the suite of capabilities of the evolutionary "dead ends." We were H. sapiens sapiens. If we deigned to allow Neandertals to be a branch of our own species, their subspecies was distinctive. They were less than we in the ways in which modern humans were exceptional, and universal.. This orthodoxy probably resulted in a positive feedback loop for the educated public, in which I include myself. The more the Out of Africa model of neo-African human exceptionalism settled into the received wisdom, the more animalized Neandertals and other human lineages became. Naturally a multiregionalist model of continuity became distasteful, because continuity implied a connection between modern humans and subhumans. The fact that the largest cranial capacities in the whole human lineage were sported by Neandertals became a counterintuitive fact, which just went ...
Whereas Act I hominins like Ardipithecus were devoted forest-dwellers, spending most of their time in trees; and Act II protagonists like Paranthropus and Australopithecus split their time between the trees and the ground; in the skeleton of erectus we see the first evidence of a permanent pact with terra firma. Tree-climbing adaptations were replaced by long, lean legs well suited for endurance walking. Brain sizes averaged close to 1000 cc, only about 25 percent less than our own. Regional populations, each with unique traits, developed in Europe and Asia, where they encountered new varieties of large mammals, from mammoth to cave bear. It is unclear whether erectus had made the transition from scavenger to predator by the time of its initial exodus from Africa. But it appears virtually certain that this close cousin of ours was an effective big game hunter throughout most of its lengthy tenure. The hunting and gathering lifestyle that would eventually characterize the bulk of human history ...

LUomo Erectus, nato in Africa un milione di anni fa, fu il vero padre ancestrale dellUomo Sapiens. LUomo Erectus possedeva una costola mobile, cioè delle reni, in più del Sapiens. Egli usò il fuoco. Anche luro, "bos primigenius" dipinto anche a Lascaux, possedeva una costola in più del toro, un dio non ancora antropomorfizzato a livello psichico. Il Sapiens, ossia Uomo di Cro-magnon, un portento nella caccia, però, visse per un po a contatto con quello di Neanderthal, un antropofago per lo più europeo, dal carattere sessuale più libero, dicono i paleontologi, e che tingeva di ocra rossa i morti e decorava le salme con fiori in caverne dei Monti Zagros, tra Iraq ed Elam. Io suppongo che Lilith, come demone biblico, in vero fosse un Neanderthalensis e che mal si accoppiava col Sapiens. Quando, poi, in rito sciamanico, e dopo una sonnolenta glaciazione, nella primitiva tribù umana si volle paragonare a forza vitale una rara bellezza di Sapiens Sapiens, cioè Eva, prodotto di una ...
This difficulty in telling one from the other is precisely what we would expect of an early human ancestor close to the divergence of humans from chimpanzees. We would expect it to have characteristics of both and characteristics such as the heavy brow ridges which have been retained in chimps, are present in many other early hominids but which are absent in most humans today. As we move back in time towards when the distinction between any two diverging species was blurred, so we expect the difficulty in distinguishing between them to increase and revolve around finer points of detail, and with that, the arguments to be less easy to resolve. This is science ...
ARDI. La revista Science acaba de publicar 11 artículos pertenecientes a 47 autores en los que se analizan más de 110 restos del género Ardipithecus (4,4 millones de años), correspondientes a 36 individuos, incluyendo uno llamado Ardi, que representa a una mujer adulta más primitiva que Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis : 3, 6 m de años), reemplazándola en el brazo humano de la familia primate. Ardi, mujer (caninos + cráneo fino y pequeño) adulta, no más grande que un moderno chimpancé, medía 120 cm de altura y pesaba 50 kgs. Según Gen Suwa que analizó más de 145 dientes de ardipitecos, estos comían plantas, nueces pequeños mamíferos y pocas frutas, encontradas en árboles y tierra firme. Los machos también tenían caninos cortos. Aunque caminaban erguidos sobre sus dos piés, su marcha no fué tan eficiente como la exhibida por Lucy. Asimismo no habían desarrollado la estructura de sus arcos plantares al modo de Lucy o del género Homo. Mientras sus manos eran similares a las ...
This new molecular data meshes better with key archaeological dates. Earlier genetic studies have shown that Homo heidelbergensis, a direct ancestor of Neanderthals, split from the branch leading to Homo sapiens much more recently, 270,000 to 435,000 years ago.. A slower molecular clock would force scientists to re-think the later turning points in prehistory, including the migration of humans out of Africa. New calculations put humans leaving Africa 120,000 years ago, which seems to fit the archaeological finds, like the 100,000-year-old human fossils that were discovered in Israel.. The slowed clock puts the common ancestor of humans and organutans at 40 million years ago, more than 20 million years before dates derived from abundant fossil evidence. This could complicate matters.. Its possible that the mutation rate isnt constant, and may have slowed in the past 15 million years, which could account for such discrepancies. Ancestral apes were smaller animals than the current living ones, ...
