    On the slopes of the Nariokotome sand river in Kenya, sifting through sediments more than a million years old, Kamoya Kimeu uncovered a small piece of a skull. Piece followed piece--facial bones, teeth, vertebrae--and little by little paleontologists put together the most complete early hominid ever discovered, a Homo erectus skeleton christened the Nariokotome boy.4/5(2). Homo erectus is a major figure in our past. Fossils identified as Homo erectus span most of the million year Pleistocene era, a period which includes the transition to larger-brained hominids, a basic evolution of tool manufacture and use, and the first widespread movement and adaptations of early human populations to distinct environments.

The hominid cranial remains from the East Africa fossil site, Koobi Fora, comprise the richest available source of evidence for interpreting hominid taxonomy and phylogenetic history. This volume not only reviews the Koobi Fora evidence, but includes a morphological and morphometric survey of all the other relevant Plio-Pleistocene fossil evidence for hominid evolution.

External cranial base flexion is reduced among hominoids and we predict that this condition was shared by the Pan–Homo LCA and the stem panin.

The morphology of the stem hominin with respect to external cranial base flexion remains ambiguous. A flat external cranial base angle is present in P. by: Hominid - the group consisting of all modern and extinct Great Apes (that is, modern humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and orang-utans plus all their immediate ancestors).

We present an analysis of cranial capacity of hominid crania available from the literature. The crania belong to both the genusAustralopithecus andHomo and provide a clear outline of hominid cranial evolution starting at more than 3 million years ago.

Beginning withA. afarensis there is a clear increase in both absolute and relative brain size with every Cited by:   The detailed morphological study of the cranial remains of Lluc showed that, together with the modern anatomical features of hominids (e.g., nasal aperture wide at the base, high zygomatic rood.

Hominid trace fossils are classified as artifacts, biofacts, and features (Fig. ).Artifacts are objects of any material manufactured or modified by humans categorized as lithics, ceramics, metals, and organics (Clark, ).Biofacts are the remains of plants or animals modified by hominid gnawing, trampling, butchering, gathering, or digging (Bunn, ).

Introduction. The species A. afarensis is one of the better known australopithecines, merely with regard to the number of samples attributed to the species. The species was named by D. Johanson and T. White in This lead to a heated debate over the validity of the species (seen in a issue of Science), with the species eventually being accepted by most.

According to John Hawks, a palaeoanthropologist on the Rising Star Expedition, it was produced by scaling cranial elements from different. When the entire time span of more than 3 Ma is analysed jointly, the date (= time) is responsible for the major portion (89%) of the variation in hominid cranial capacity, while taxa on their own are responsible for a minor portion of this variation (5%), the rest being errors of estimates.

(De Miguel and M. Hennebergp. 16)Author: Nick Matzke. The hominid's brain/body plateau of cc/kg corresponds to a cranial capacity of about cc, making it similar to the gm stage in present humans. "The Great Leap Forward" (Diamond, ) took place ab years ago when the hominid suddenly became able to deal with complex or abstract problems.

It is now understood that while there were considerable anatomical differences between the early hominins, they also shared a number of important traits.

By 3 million years ago, most of them probably were nearly as efficient at bipedal locomotion as humans. Like people, but unlike apes, the bones of their pelvis, or hip region, were shortened from top to bottom and bowl-shaped. This book looks at the only direct evidence of our brain evolution over the past 4 million years, paleoneurology, by examining as much information about the size, organization, shape, and asymmetries of our fossil hominid ancestors’ brains as is available from their cranial remains.5/5(1).

Ardipithecus, the earliest known genus of the zoological family Hominidae (the group that includes humans and excludes great apes) and the likely ancestor of Australopithecus, a group closely related to and often considered ancestral to modern.

The Skull of Australopithecus afarensis ends with an engaging recapitulation and synthesis of the findings detailed in previous chapters. In light of A.L and other new craniofacial remains the authors argue convincingly in favor of the taxonomic unity of A.

afarensis, and justify the inclusion of Laetoli and Garusi. Paleoanthropology postcranial elements will feature casts of arms, hands, pelves, legs, and feet of early Homo, Neanderthals, australopithecines, Ardipithecus ramidus and other hominins.

Postcranial elements are the components that compose a skeleton without the skull. Cranio-facial structures in primates. One of the major trends in primate evolution generally and hominid evolution in particular, is an increase in cranial capacity accompanied by cranio-facial contraction and widening of the mandible (Dambricourt-Malassé, ).Deniker () was first to notice the significance of flexure of the skull base, and the idea was picked by Anthony () Cited by: A Hominid from the Lower Pleistocene of Atapuerca, Spain: Possible Ancestor to Neanderthals and Modern Humans.

The fossil record offers clues as to the origins of bipedalism, which in turn helps us to identify those species ancestral to modern humans. One of the most abundant sources for early bipedalism is found in Australopithecus afarensis, a species that lived between approximately 4 and Ma.A.
