    Animal Diversity Diversity is the abundance in the number of species in a given location. Most animal phyla are invertebrates. Extant (living) animals are divided into 35 phyla. Phyla are split according to their adult and embryological forms. First spilt in evolution is Parazoa and Eumetazoa.   The origin of modern human genetic diversity is still widely debated. Genetic data indicates the importance of Africa in modern human evolution, in line with the observations from the fossil record of the first appearance of modern anatomical form in by: 1.

    Behavioral modernity is a suite of behavioral and cognitive traits that distinguishes current Homo sapiens from other anatomically modern humans, hominins, and primates. Although often debated, most scholars agree that modern human behavior can be characterized by abstract thinking, planning depth. Early Modern Human Culture. Early modern Homo sapiens in Africa and Southwest Asia , years ago made tools that were similar to those of the Neandertals and other late archaic humans. T hese were mostly simple Mousterian-like Levallois flake and core tools. However, by 9 0,, years ago some modern humans began producing new kinds of artifacts that were revolutionary enough to.

      Human Evolution. The family Hominidae of order Primates includes the hominoids: the great apes (Figure \(\PageIndex{3}\)).Evidence from the fossil record and from a comparison of human and chimpanzee DNA suggests that humans and chimpanzees diverged from a common hominoid ancestor approximately 6 million years ago. Linnaean Classification. The evolution of life on Earth over the past 4 billion years has resulted in a huge variety of species. For more than 2, years, humans have been trying to classify the great diversity of life. The science of classifying organisms is called taxonomy.

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. Virtually all aspects of human behaviour show enormous variation both within and between cultural groups, including material culture, social organization and language.

Thousands of distinct cultural groups exist: about 6, languages are spoken today, and it is thought that a far greater number of languages existed in the past but became extinct. tral role in human behavior, and in human culture, it is unsurprising that the origin of language has been a topic of myth and speculation since before the beginning of history.

More recently, since the dawn of modern Darwinian evolutionary theory, questions about the evolution of language have generated a rapidly growing scientific Size: 4MB. 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, the great process involved the gradual development of traits such as human bipedalism and language, as well as.

The human genome looks the way it does because of all the genetic changes that have affected our ancestors. The exact origin of modern humans has long been a topic of debate.

Modern humans originated in Africa within the pastyears and evolved from their most likely recent common ancestor, Homo erectus. the book—modern human evolution in Africa. An inter-disciplinary approach to the study of human evolution is surely required and Willoughby is to be commended for not skimping on the supporting details of the plot, but the manner in which these data relate to the story of our ori-gins should not lie buried in the tail end of a chapter.

Evolution in organisms occurs through changes in heritable traits—the inherited characteristics of an organism. In humans, for example, eye colour is an inherited characteristic and an individual might inherit the "brown-eye trait" from one of their parents.

Inherited traits are controlled by genes and the complete set of genes within an organism's genome (genetic material) is called its. BOOKS AND ARTS 14 February The past, present and future of human evolution This is the theory that modern humans originated in Author: María Martinón-Torres.

Despite an entire industry devoted to applying diversity principles to change corporate culture, diversity remains an ambiguous and misunderstood concept to most that can clearly benefit from continued frank and thoughtful dialogue.
