Stages in human evolution

Human evolution. Illustration showing stages in the evolution of humans. At left, proconsul (23-15 million years ago) is depicted hypothetically as an African ape with both primitive and advanced features. From it Australopithecus afarensis (>4- 2.5 Myr BP) evolved and displayed a bipedal, upright gait walking on two legs. Homo habilis (2.5 Myr BP) was truly human (" homo" ) resembling Australopithecus but also used stone tools. About 1.5 Myr BP Homo erectus (at centre) appeared in Africa, used fire, wooden tools, and migrated from Africa into Eurasia. Homo neanderthalensis (200, 000 years BP) lived in Europe and Middle East and was closely related to modern humans (right)

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the stages in human evolution, offering a visual representation of our remarkable journey as a species. The artwork begins on the left with the hypothetical depiction of proconsul, an African ape from 23-15 million years ago. This creature exhibits both primitive and advanced features, serving as a crucial link to our ancient ancestors. Moving forward in time, we encounter Australopithecus afarensis, who evolved from proconsul over four to two and a half million years ago. Notably, this hominid displayed a bipedal and upright gait, walking on two legs—a significant milestone in our evolutionary path. Next in line is Homo habilis from 2.5 million years ago—an early human resembling Australopithecus but also utilizing stone tools. This marked the emergence of true humans or "homo" showcasing their ability to adapt and innovate. Around 1.5 million years ago, Homo erectus appeared in Africa before migrating into Eurasia. These individuals not only harnessed fire but also crafted wooden tools—an impressive feat that further propelled human advancement. Lastly, we have Homo neanderthalensis from approximately 200,000 years ago—our close relatives who inhabited Europe and the Middle East. Their striking resemblance to modern humans highlights just how closely intertwined our evolutionary paths are. Through this artful representation of human evolution by Science Photo Library, we gain insight into our ancestral origins while marveling at the incredible progress made throughout millennia of existence.
