The fossil evidence is still disputed, but most paleontologists agree that the first ancestral primates evolved during the middle to late Cretaceous period; a good early candidate is the North American Purgatorius, followed ten million years later by the more recognizably primate-like Plesiadapis of North America and Eurasia. After that, the most important evolutionary split was between old. This book proposes a theory of human cognitive evolution, drawing from paleontology, linguistics, anthropology, cognitive science, and especially neuropsychology. The properties of humankind's brain, culture, and cognition have coevolved in a tight iterative loop; the main event in human evolution has occurred at the cognitive level, however Cited by:

In Hominid Culture in Primate Perspective, primatologists discuss how human thought, language, and culture are actually rooted in the evolution of primate cognition, communication, and \"precultural\" behavior. Their research indicates that the perceived differences between human culture and primate behavior are increasingly difficult to identify.

The Hominidae (/ h ɒ ˈ m ɪ n ɪ d iː /), whose members are known as great apes or hominids (/ ˈ h ɒ m ɪ n ɪ d z /), are a taxonomic family of primates that includes eight extant species in four genera: Pongo, the Bornean, Sumatran and Tapanuli orangutan; Gorilla, the eastern and western gorilla; Pan, the common chimpanzee and the bonobo; and Homo, of which only modern humans : Mammalia.

Hominids is a pretty good first book in a trilogy with a cool premise, namely, that there is a parallel universe where Neanderthals became the dominant hominid species on an otherwise-identical Earth.
I use the term pretty good deliberately, knowing full well this book won the Hugo/5. Hominidae, in zoology, one of the two living families of the ape superfamily Hominoidea, the other being the Hylobatidae (gibbons). Hominidae includes the great apes—that is, the orangutans (genus Pongo), gorillas (Gorilla), and chimpanzees and bonobos (Pan)—as well as human beings (Homo).Formerly, humans alone (with their extinct forebears) were placed in Hominidae, and the great apes.

Ready to risk her distinguished career in its pursuit, she will stop at nothing to prove the existence of America's best known monster: Bigfoot/5. Homo habilis -> Homo ergaster -> Homo erectus -> Homo sapiens -> Homo neanderthals In the time-line sequence above, several Homo species are named.
which is the first one that is out of order in the sequence in which it first appears in the fossil record. Primates in Perspective is the first edited volume to offer a comprehensive overview of primatology since Forty-four original essays--by fifty-nine leading researchers in the field today--provide wide-ranging and contemporary coverage of all of the major areas of primatology.
Arranged in six sections, the text begins with an introduction to primatology and a review of the natural history. Primate and Human Evolution provides a synthesis of the evolution and adaptive signiﬁcance of human anatomical, physiological, and behavioral traits.
Using paleontology and modern human variation and biology, it compares hominid traits to those of other catarrhine primates both living and extinct, presenting a new hominization model that does.

Povinelli; Pages: ; First Published: March The human primate is a deeply cultural species, our cognition being shaped by culture, and cultural transmission amounting to an “epidemic of mental representations” (Sperber, ).The architecture of this aspect of human cognition has been shaped by our evolutionary past in ways that we can now begin to discern through comparative studies of other by:.
Two studies involving an analysis of artefact raw material use in Bed II at Olduvai Gorge (– myr) are reported. The first study shows evidence for the manufacture of chert artefacts at a factory site and the subsequent transport of selected whole flakes to another site for use.
Early hominids are thus shown to have been capable of planning a sequence of activities involving raw Cited by: As nouns the difference between primate and hominid is that primate is (zoology) a mammal of the order primates, including simians and prosimians or primate can be (ecclesiastical) in the catholic church, a rare title conferred to or claimed by the sees of certain archbishops, or the highest-ranking bishop of a present or historical, usually political circumscription while hominid is.Primate Evolution and Human Origins compiles, for the first time, the major ideas and publications that have shaped our current view of the evolutionary biology of the primates and the origin of the human line.
Designed for freshmen-to-graduate students in anthropology, paleontology, and biology, the book is a unique collection of classic papers, culled from the past 20 years of research.
