About 2 mya, fossils begin to appear from our own genus, Homo. Although several species of Homo are recognized, we will lump them all together for didactic purposes and refer to them as Homo erectus.

As the book progressed, Ron, somewhat reluctantly, and I agreed that there were good reasons for believing that man’s evolution from a primitive mammal did not occur in Africa either, and that man had descended from a lineage that was closer.

Homo erectus, an extinct human species, appears to have evolved in Africa before spreading into other regions of the Old World. In addition to serving as an important guide to the species' anatomy, this study documents its history and relationship to Homo sapiens.5/5(1).

Wrangham’s book “Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human” is published today by Basic Books. In it, he makes the case that the ability to harness fire and cook food allowed the brain to grow and the digestive tract to shrink, giving rise to our ancestor Homo erectus some.

There are clear differences in the size and shape of the skull in Homo sapiens compared to other human-like species including Homo erectus (schematic).

from hor: Ian Moffat. Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa aboutyears ago.

We are now the only living members of what many zoologists refer to as the human tribe, Hominini, but there is. Human evolution is the evolutionary process that led to the emergence of anatomically modern humans, beginning with the evolutionary history of primates—in particular genus Homo—and leading to the emergence of Homo sapiens as a distinct species of the hominid family, which includes the great apes.

This process involved the gradual development of traits such as human bipedalism and language. Homo erectus was skillful at hunting and butchering animals and is presumed to be the first fire user.

Archaeologists believe Homo erectus established early cultures and had methods for communicating information to the next generation.

The concept of language is believed to have existed in Homo erectus. This book provides a wealth of information about individual crania, jaws and postcranial remains and will serve as an important guide to the anatomy of Homo erectus.

It also documents the history of this extinct human species and suggests a route whereby Homo erectus may have given rise to people more like Homo sapiens. The book traces the origin of Homo erectus- the extinct species of the broader genus Homo, to Africa long before the subsequent members spread to Java and China during the Early Pleistocene.

By the use of scientific evidence and comparative anatomy, the authors consider the species (Homo erectus) as the direct ancestors of the common man.

Fossil Hominids, Human Evolution: Thomas Huxley & Eugene Dubois.
