Primate Order

Anamalia, Vertebrata, Chordata, Mammalia

primate classification
Primate Classification

Primates – monkeys, lemurs, gorillas, chimps, humans, etc.

primates cont
Primates cont.
  • Family Hominoidea (hominid)– great apes (gorilla, orangutans, chimps & bonobos), humans (living and extinct)
  • Hominins – chimps, bonobos, and humans (living and extinct)
  • Genus Homo – the humans
primates
Primates
  • hair or fur
  • warm-blooded
  • live young
  • suckle
  • infant dependence
  • social life
  • play
  • observation and imitation
  • pecking order

Common Primate Traits

Primate Family Tree

Orangutan

Crown lemur

ardipithecus genus
Ardipithecus genus
  • 1st homonims?
  • Africa (Ethiopia)
  • 6 mya – 4 mya
  • teeth more similar to hominins

than chimps

  • probably not bipedal
  • lived in woodlands and grasslands
australopithecus genus
Australopithecus genus
  • 4 mya – 2 mya
  • throughout E Africa
  • ate fruits, vegetables & tubers
  • small brain but likely bipedal
  • not tool users
  • evolved into Homo habilis
hominin evolution
Hominin Evolution
  • Homo habilis (2.0 – 1.6mya)
  • H. erectus (1.9-70kyBP)
  • H. neanderthalensis (300-30kyBP)
  • H. sapiens (200kyBP – present)
  • ~ 20 different homo species

Scale: Millions of Years BP

homo habilis 2 3 1 6 mya
Homo habilis: 2.3-1.6 mya
  • first humans
  • In Africa
  • toolmaker
  • probable meat-eater
  • possibly arboreal (woodlands)
  • no speech

homo erectus 1 8 mya to 70 000 yrs bp
Homo erectus 1.8 mya to 70 000 yrs BP
  • evolved in Africa and migrated to Asia
  • bigger brains
  • more complex tools
  • walked completely upright
  • lived in small groups (bands)
  • fire
  • cooked meat
  • used furs
  • language unlikely
  • may have made sounds
  • possibly wiped out by Toba supereruption? (~ 70 000 yrs BP in Indonesia)
homo neandertalensis
Homo neandertalensis
  • 300 000 – 30 000 yrs BP
  • Europe
  • massive brains (as large or larger than ours)
  • large torso, short limbs, broad nasal passages
  • carnivores, adapted to cold climates
  • co-existed with homo sapiens
  • DNA testing shows human DNA contains 4-5% Neandertal DNA
homo sapiens
Homo sapiens
  • Archaic – 200,000 to 35,000 years BP
    • Homo sapiens
  • Modern – 35,000 years BP to present
    • Anatomically modern
    • Homo sapiens sapiens
modern homo sapiens
Modern Homo Sapiens
  • Multiregional Model
    • Humans evolved more or less simultaneously across the entire Old World from several ancestral populations.
  • Rapid-Replacement Model (Out of Africa)
    • Humans evolved only once--in Africa --and then migrated throughout the Europe and Asia, replacing their ancestors
    • mDNA evidence supports this
