Astrobiology and Space Exploration Introduction
Learn precisely where each hominid genus & species falls into the overall ‘timeline’. View a artist’s graphic recreations made from the actual fossils used to classify each hominid species! Take a glance at these remains of ancient individuals which provide the basis for much of our understanding of physical limits and appearance of our near and distant relatives.
Introduction to Evolutionary Biology Version 2 Copyright © 1996-1997 by Chris Colby[Last Update: January 7, 1996] volution is the cornerstone of modern biology. It unites all the fields of biology under one theoretical umbrella. It is not a difficult concept, but very few people -- the majority of biologists included -- have a satisfactory grasp of it. One common mistake is believing that species can be arranged on an evolutionary ladder from bacteria through "lower" animals, to "higher" animals and, finally, up to man. Mistakes permeate popular science expositions of evolutionary biology.
