Anatomy, Evolution of Human

Abstract : The study of the evolution of humans relies mostly on data from comparative skeletal anatomy techniques conducted on Hominini remains. This entry describes the skeletal anatomy of modern humans (Homo sapiens) within the framework of human evolu-tion, contrasting modern human specialized cranial and postcranial skeletons with the skeletons of great apes (i.e., gorillas and chimpanzees) and with other species from the Hominini subtribe (i.e., Australopithecus, Paranthropus,and otherHomo species).
