Unique characteristics of the Human Species. Adaptations for Erect Stance: Position of Foramen Magnum (base of skull not back) Double curvature of spine.
Primates Primates are an order of mammals which includes lemurs, monkeys, apes, and humans Where do we separate?
EVOLUTION OF HUMANS Disclaimer: This is not the final answer to the question of how human evolution occurred; this is a short collection of information.
Probably first appeared about 200,000 years ago. Paleoanthropologists study human evolution. There is sparse evidence relating to the evolution.
