H. floresiensis: A new species?


Asian island of Flores

Floresiensis and sapien skull


Comparison of size:

Pygmy, European, and H. floresiensis


Pygmy elephant


What about the tools?

Was floresiensis “smart”?


H. Sapien and H. floresiensis brain


Relative brain to body size


So…Several individual skeletons were found of a small population ranging in age from ~90,000 - 18,000 years ago. They have relatively small brains, but might have been able to do sophisticated things.


Homo floresiensis:

Are they a distinct species, and if so, how are we related?


Trait diversity may vary in different populations
