I have integrated this web page on human evolution into an electronic text, " Nature's Holism - Holism.
Evolution & Ecology " (see its HOME PAGE .) The result is that some areas, such as the glossary are shared.
Cuvier established amongst the scientific community the fact of extinction.
Ernst Mayr reduced all the hominid (human ancestor: (see hominid books)) fossil records to three species, A.
africanus (Dart, 1925) (including small brained australopithecines) (see books), H.
erectus (including the Java and Peking hominids - the archetypal Missing Link) and H.
sapiens (including Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon) (see the modern taxonomic classification of humans).
Widgets Human evolution from an ancestral primate species is not a vague hypothesis, but a historical fact.
Archaeological geology as a science had to precede the proposal of evolution, as an understanding of the immense age of the earth is necessary to understand evolution.This formed the foundation of the neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory.Very simply, there are five basic principles to this theory:  Variation has a genetic origin (i.e.The split of these lineages were generally concordant with the pattern of continental break-up of the super-continent Gondwana, and our biogeographic reconstructions based on the dispersal-extinction-cladogenesis model (DEC) corroborate our view that the divergences in these austral lineages were caused by vicariance events following the Gondwanan break-up.In addition, the phylogenetic position and geographic origin of the Hawaiian genus was revealed for the first time.But we're not talking about the singers passport stamps - Beyonce sported a text print T-shirt with her favourite cities on instead. Slogan T-shirts have hit the the mainstream in a big way this season.
