PONGIDES

Toward the end of the Precambrian period, about 570 million years ago, a number of multi celled forms began to appear in the fossil record, including invertebrates resembling sponges and jellyfish. As the Cambrian began, most of the basic body plans of invertebrates emerged

from these Precambrian forms. These Cambrian forms were not identical to modern invertebrates, but were their early ancestors. Major groups of living organisms, such as fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, did not appear until millions of years after the end of the Cambrian Period. Shrews:

Pongidae, or the Pongids, is an obsolete primate taxon containing the gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. las-mejores-fotos-de-monos-pareja gabon_1743 chimp-1They are sometimes called “great apes”.

known to be paraphyletic. PONGIDS gave rise to Hominid around seven million years ago. The corresponding crown group for this taxon is Hominidae. Pongidae has six extant member species. Nonetheless, according to recent genetic studies, modern humans may have bred with “at least two groups” of ancient humans: Neanderthals and Denisovans. Other studies have cast doubt on admixture being the source of the shared genetic markers between archaic and

particularly licentious sexual behavior, as well as their exceptional intelligence.

Since the earliest hominid species diverged from the ancestor we share with modern African apes, 5 to 8 million years ago, there have been at least a dozen different species of these human like creatures. Many of these hominid species are close relatives, but not human ancestors. Most went extinct without giving rise to other species. Some of the extinct hominids known today, however, are almost certainly direct ancestors of Homo sapiens. While the total number of species that existed and the relationships among them is still unknown, the picture becomes clearer as new fossils are found. Humans evolved through the same biological processes that govern the evolution of all life on Earth.

Non-modern varieties of Homo are certain to have survived until after 30,000 years ago, and perhaps until as recent as 10,000 years ago. Which of these, if any, are included under the term “archaic human” is a matter of definition. Anatomically modern humans appear from about 200,000 years ago and after 70,000 years ago gradually supplanting the “archaic” human varieties.
