Relethford and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices/5(88).   Most species that have existed on planet Earth are extinct, including a number of early human species. Evolutionary biology and scientific evidence tell us that all humans evolved from apelike ancestors more than 6 million years ago in Africa. Information obtained from early-human fossils and archaeological remains suggests that there were 15 to 20 different species of early humans several.

  In their book Evolving Ourselves, Juan Enriquez and Steve Gullans describe a world where evolution is no longer driven by natural processes. Instead, it is driven by human choices, through what they call unnatural selection and non-random mutation. As a result, we will see the emergence of an entirely new species of human : Raya Bidshahri. (Over time, the book became known by the shorter title "On the Origin of Species.") The original edition of the book was pages, and had taken Darwin about nine months to write. When he first submitted chapters to his publisher John Murray, in April , Murray had reservations about the book.

The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist. Human species name generator. This name generator will give you 10 random names for human species, similar to names like Homo sapiens, Homo erectus and Homo neanderthalensis. Some would consider these caveman names, but it depends entirely on the context, especially considering the names in this generator are fictional.
