• Homo
  • Blumenbach first used it in his De generis humani varietate nativa liber ("On the natural varieties of the human genus") in 1776, Linnaeus 1758 had already used Homo troglodytes for a hypothetical mixture of human and orangutan. (wikipedia.org)
  • paniscus
  • Bonobos, Pan paniscus, are found only in Central Africa, south of the Congo River and north of the Kasai River (a tributary of the Congo), in the humid forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo of Central Africa. (wikipedia.org)
  • populations
  • Although Pan troglodytes is the most abundant and widespread of the great apes, and many populations exist in protected areas, the declines that have occurred are expected to continue, satisfying the criteria for an Endangered listing (Oates 2006). (iucnredlist.org)
  • Both Pan species are considered to be endangered as human activities have caused severe declines in the populations and ranges of both species. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • This would indicate that both humans and members of the Pan clade were present in the East African Rift Valley during the Middle Pleistocene. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the crucial Nature paper reporting on initial genome comparisons, researchers identified 35 million single-nucleotide changes, five million insertion or deletion events, and a number of chromosomal rearrangements which constituted the genetic differences between the two Pan species and humans, covering 98% of the same genes.
