Genus: Homo. Species: Sapiens In a new book, Yuval Harari sets out the long, fascinating history of how modern human beings came to be. In this chapter, I survey ideas of the concept of species, as they apply to the human evolutionary record. I discuss the question of the meaning of a genus, concluding that all species since the separation of the human line from that of the chimpanzee (and possibly including the chimpanzee lineage as well) should be placed in a single genus, for which the prior available name is Homo.

Articles and papers: ma. A member of the Australopithecus afarensis left human-like footprints on volcanic ash in Laetoli, Kenya (Northern Tanzania), providing strong evidence of full-time bipedalism. Australopithecus afarensis lived between and million years ago, and is considered one of the earliest homininsthose species that developed and comprised the lineage of ‘’Homo. Abstract. In Dart proposed that his newly named genus Australopithecus was the ancestor of the genus Homo (Dart, ). Despite a recent rash of claims to the contrary based on misidentified fossils or erroneous dates (R. Leakey, , a, a; Oxnard, , ; M. Leakey, ), it has become increasingly evident that Dart was correct—Australopithecus was ancestral to Homo.

Australopithecus garhi is a gracile australopithecine species discovered in Ethiopia. The remains of this hominin are believed to be a human ancestor species, and perhaps the ancestor of the human genus fossils were found in in the Bouri is in the Middle Awash of Ethiopia's Afar Depression..

Probably just another afarensis skull, not a new species. mosaic features in an unusual combination high distortion (makes it difficult to say that this fossil is actually a gracile another species all together. prob. an afarensis fossil that is badly distorted).

Get this from a library. A new species of the genus Australopithecus (primates: Hominidae) from the Pliocene of eastern Africa. [Donald C Johanson; T D White; Yves Coppens].

AUSTRALOPITHECUS AFARENSIS. Australopithecus afarensis. Australopithecus afarensis was named as a species in by D. Jonhanson and T. White. It is one of the better know Australopithecines because a large number of fossils have been found and attributed to this species.

"Determining which species of australopithecine (if any) is ancestral to the genus Homo is a question that is a top priority for many paleoanthropologists, but one that will likely elude any conclusive answers for years to come. Nearly every possible species has been suggested as a likely candidate, but none are overwhelmingly : Mammalia.

A new species of the genus Australopithecus (Primates: Hominidae) from the Pliocene of eastern Africa Vol Page 1 Pliocene-Pleistocene Suidae from Hadar, Ethiopia. Scientists have discovered fossils of a new species of Australopithecus in South Africa.

The new species, named Australopithecus sediba, come from a cave called fossils are between and million years old. The fossils include a skull and partial skeleton of a young male approximately 12 to 13 years old when he died, and an adult female jaw and partial skeleton.

Australopithecus afarensis is one of the longest-lived and best-known early human species—paleoanthropologists have uncovered remains from more than individuals.

Found between and million years ago in Eastern Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania), this species survived for more thanyears, which is over four times as long as our own species has been around.

The origin of Australopithecus, the genus widely interpreted as ancestral to Homo, is a central problem in human evolutionary studies.

Australopithecus species. Besides shedding light on the origins and diversity of the genus Homo, the new species — named Homo naledi — also appears to have intentionally deposited bodies of its dead in.

Ardipithecus, Australopithecus, and Homo can be thought of as the major phases of human evolution. Australopithecus was the first fossil hominid genus to be recovered. Its species were fully bipedal primates with ape-sized brains.

The earliest species of this genus, Au. anamensis, appeared in Kenya and Ethiopia approximately million years ago.

How Australopithecus afarensis changed our understanding of human evolution. afarensis belongs to the genus Australopithecus, a group of small-bodied and small-brained early hominin species (human relatives) that were capable of upright walking but not well adapted for travelling long distances on the ground.
