  • Evolution Of The Genus Homo

    Since the emergence of the genus Homo, the hominins went through great patterns of evolution over generations. Through series of adaptations, the genus Homo spread in various geographic locations and eventually emerged as anatomically modern humans. With the allele frequency changes that evolved in the genus Homo, there is key evidence that microevolution led to macroevolution. From speciation to extinction, the modern synthesis helps us explain not only the mechanisms of evolution and the…

  • Complications Of The Genus Chlamydia

    The genus chlamydia is made of three species called C. psittaci, C. pneumoniae, and C. trachomatis. Today we will be focusing on C. trachomatis. It stains gram negative which means it has a thin cell wall and it is bacillus or rod shaped. C. trachomatis is also an obligate intracellular organism which means it cannot exist without a host cell. This leads us into our next segment on how C. trachomatis affects us as human beings. To many of us we know C. trachomatis as chlamydia, which is…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Chimpanzee

    The intelligent and aggressive species known as the chimpanzee is recognized as the most closely related animal to humans in the world.

  • Out Of Africa Theory: The Hominin Evolution Theory

    The hominin evolution theory is the idea of Homo sapiens sapiens (AMHs) evolved from a lineage of hominins in Africa. The purpose of the project is to determine the genus and species of seven skulls discovered by Dr. Musoma in Africa, Europe and Asia, approximate the age of each skull, interpret the evolutionary pathway of each species, and provide evidence for and against the “Out of Africa” theory. The purpose of the project with be completed and evidence on the “Out of Africa” theory will be…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Paleoanthropology

    characteristics. Berger and his team deduced that there is significant differences in characteristics between H. naledi and H. erectus. However, some scientists claim the bones do not indicate a new species, but rather a known hominid species, Homo erectus. According to White, “Berger’s findings are probably South African representatives of Homo erectus (Martin).” Other specialists concur and support the notion of Homo naledi being an unknown species.
