Early Human Evolution: Climate Change and Human Evoluti. The evolutionary surge that led to Homo habilis began during the transition between the Pliocene and Pleistocene Epochs around 2.5 million years ago when climates were becoming cooler and drier.

Early Human Evolution: Climate Change and Human Evoluti

All later species of Homo evolved during the Pleistocene (2,600,000-11,700 years ago). This was generally a time of more extreme world cooling and recurrent glaciations (ice ages). During the coldest periods, global temperatures dropped by about 9º F. (5º C.) and long-lasting ice sheets spread out from the poles and high mountains. Between the four or more major glaciations of the Pleistocene, there were interglacial warming periods with temperatures similar to now.

Both the glacials and the interglacials lasted tens of thousands of years. Glacier pano Nature - Photo - Fond-Ecran-Image. Interactive Timeline.

Hominid Fossil Sitesand Patterns of Hominid DispersalWhen and how new hominid species appeared, and how they affected or displaced already existing species, are questions that many lines of research are helping to answer.

Handprint : Ancestral Lines

Patterns of human migration form a key part of the solution. Recently, with more powerful geological dating methods based on fluctuations in the earth's magnetic field or electron spin resonance, the earliest Homo erectus fossils from China have been dated to 1.9 million years ago. This requires an even earlier date for the emergence of Homo ergaster in Africa, implying humans first evolved about 2.5 million years ago.

For what they were... we are: The various options for the migration out of Africa

Petraglia and colleagues' blog Ancient Indian Corridors. The main focus of this short entry (with open access links to the relevant papers) is the Jubbah site in what today is the terrible Nafud Desert but what really called my attention the most is this other article: Trailblazers across Arabia, where Petraglia discusses not just his own work on the matter of the migration out of Africa of Homo sapiens but also the recent one by Armitage, who proposed a coastal migration via southern Arabia some 125,000 years ago. This map from that article really synthesizes the various options, even if the matter on when the migration happened (125 Ka ago or more like 90-80 Ka ago) remains open: Sadly the Ice Age sea levels are not reflected, for that reason we cannot appreciate that the Persian Gulf was then above sea level, constituting a fertile riverine and swampland region that surely hosted plenty human settlements.

Out of Africa I - Wikipedia

For migrations of modern humans, see Out of Africa II. In palaeoanthropology, Out of Africa I is the first series of hominin expansions into Eurasia, which took place from 1.8 to 0.8 million years ago (Ma). Climate Swings Drove Early Humans Out of Africa (and Back Again) - SAPIENS. Migratory Crossings. Out of Africa For the human journey to really get into its stride, our species had to leave the warm embrace of mother Africa.

Migratory Crossings

Researchers identify the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait on the Red Sea as the most likely departure point. This narrow stretch of water between the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula offered the shortest route to new continents. Diputación de Albacete. Mapas Interactivos de Didactalia. Africa - Relief. Africa Physical Map Quiz. Map of Human Migration. When humans first ventured out of Africa some 60,000 years ago, they left genetic footprints still visible today.

Map of Human Migration

By mapping the appearance and frequency of genetic markers in modern peoples, we create a picture of when and where ancient humans moved around the world. These great migrations eventually led the descendants of a small group of Africans to occupy even the farthest reaches of the Earth. Our species is an African one: Africa is where we first evolved, and where we have spent the majority of our time on Earth. The earliest fossils of recognizably modern Homo sapiens appear in the fossil record at Omo Kibish in Ethiopia, around 200,000 years ago. Although earlier fossils may be found over the coming years, this is our best understanding of when and approximately where we originated. According to the genetic and paleontological record, we only started to leave Africa between 60,000 and 70,000 years ago.

The story doesn’t end there, of course. Unraveling Our Genetic History. La genètica de les migracions humanes - Revista Mètode. The Origin of Us. Who are we?

The Origin of Us

Where did we come from? Why are we here? The age-old question of our origin has been baffling mankind for centuries. For most of our history, it was widely accepted that man had been created by an omnipresent, omnipotent, God or Gods. Most ancient texts such as the Bible, Torah and The Sumerian tablets seemed to all contain similar stories of such beings. The Ancient World Unit: Multiregional Theory or Out of Africa Theory?

Suzuki (*) David Le Breton:“pensar el cuerpo es pensar el mundo” David Le Breton es doctor en Sociología de la Universidad París VII y miembro del Instituto Universitario de Francia. Profesor en la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales de la Universidad de Ciencias Humanas Marc Bloch de Estrasburgo, ha escrito innumerables artículos y colaboraciones, y más de 20 libros (traducidos a los más diversos idiomas), en relación a la temática del cuerpo humano y su construcción social y cultural.

What is an ice age? An ice age is a period of time—usually millions or tens of millions of years—when vast glaciers, called ice sheets, cover much of the Earth’s land surface. Several ice ages have occurred throughout our planet's history. The latest ice age began about 2.5 million years ago. Mapping Mankind’s Trek – Ancient Coastlines and Land Bridges. Over the last 150,000 years the world’s climate has switched constantly from warm interglacial to cold glacial conditions, marked by advances and retreats of ice sheets. From 75 – 60,000 years ago the climate was glacial and cold. The huge volume of water locked up in the ice caps of northern Europe and North America took the world’s sea levels to over 250 feet lower than today and made the climate very dry.
