Extractions: Paleoanthropology Adaptation Anthropology Award ... Home Please enter a query. Welcome to paleoanthropology.org The goal of Paleoanthropology.org is to provide a comprehensive portal or research station for the study of human evolution. Paleoanthropology is the subset of anthropology that is most directly concerned with the human evolution and adaptation. As a discipline, Paleoanthropology is multidisciplinary, bringing together researchers from diverse specialties. Researchers interested in Paleoanthropology include physical anthropologists, archaeologists, paleontologists, geologists, evolutionary psychologists and others who work to shed light on human behavioral and biological evolution. Paleoanthropology Resources: Anthro.Net: a research tool for anthropologists, archaeologists and other social scientists. The Leakey Foundation : a society commited to research related to human origins, behavior and survival. The Paleoanthropology Society : A multidisciplinary organization with the central goal is to bring together a range of other researchers whose work relates to hominid behavioral and biological evolution.

Extractions: Contents Chimp or human? ... Challenging European replacement See also Paleoanthropology in CogWeb's bibliography Introduction: The Hominid Family top The terminology of our immediate biological family is currently in flux; for an overview, see a current hominoid taxonomy . The term "hominin" refers to any genus in the human tribe (Hominini), of which Homo sapiens (modern man) is the only living specimen. We don't have to go too far back into the past, however, to find relatives (cf. "We Were Not Alone," SciAm Jan 2000). Discounting abominable snowmen, yeti, bigfoot, and other merely rumored possible members of our family, we know that only 28,000 years ago Neanderthals still thrived in Europe. More surprisingly, recent evidence (see below ) suggests that a member of even longer standing, Homo erectus , who first appears in the fossil record nearly two million years ago, may have continued to inhabit the island of Java as recently as ten thousand years ago, or into historical times.
Recent Developments In Paleoanthropology Recent Developments in paleoanthropology. Here is a selection of recentdiscoveries and other developments in paleoanthropology http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/homs/recent.html
Extractions: These pages use a fairly conservative naming system. In recent years a number of changes have been suggested in the classification of hominid fossils. Many people are now using the genus name Paranthropus , originally given to robustus , to refer to the robust australopithecines ( robustus boisei , and aethiopicus ). This change makes sense if all these species form a clade (all of the species descended from a common ancestor) but it is not yet known if this is the case. Homo habilis is a controversial species, with much disagreement over which specimens belong in habilis , and which do not. A number of scientists now use the name H. rudolfensis to refer to ER 1470 and some similar fossils. The smaller habilis -like specimens such as ER 1813 and ER 1805 are variously assigned to habilis H. ergaster , or to another as yet unnamed species. The name H. microcranous has been proposed for ER 1813, but is never used. Wood and Collard (1999) have argued on theoretical grounds that H. habilis

Extractions: Reprinted in electronic form by permission. If the data in Genesis 4 are correlated with the cultural setting of the Neolithic Revolution in the ancient Near East about 8000 to 7500 B.C., then the biblical representation of Adam as Cain's immediate father suggests that Adam and Eve lived only about 10,000 years ago. The fossil record of anatomically modern humans, however, extends at least 100,000 years before the present. There are at least three solutions to this dilemma. All three alternative solutions pose difficult exegetical or theological challenges that result either in a refinement of the doctrine of original sin or a significant departure from traditional historical readings of Genesis 2-4 Davis A. Young, professor of geology at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan, examines and evaluates these solutions from both a scientific and biblical-theological perspective.
