Homo sapiens (lateinisch „vernünftiger Mensch“) steht für: Mensch, Homo sapiens, anatomisch moderner Mensch, einzige noch lebende Art der Gattung Homo. Homo sapiens sapiens, Bezeichnung für den heutigen Menschen (verständiger Mensch, Jetztzeitmensch). Die Entwicklung des Menschen begann vor etwa 5.

Homo Homo Sapiens Navigation menu VideoHuman Origins 101 - National Geographic Homo sapiens, the species to which all modern human beings belong and the only member of the genus Homo that is not extinct. The name ‘Homo sapiens’ was applied in by the father of modern biological classification, Carolus Linnaeus. The earliest fossils of the species date to about thousand years ago. Homo sapiens is part of a group called hominids, which were the earliest humanlike creatures. Based on archaeological and anthropological evidence, we think that hominids diverged from other primates somewhere between and 4 million years ago in eastern and southern Africa. Hominids walked the Earth as early as several million years ago, and various ancestors of Homo sapiens appeared at least as early as , B.C.E. According to the United Nations Determinants and Consequences of Population Trends, modern Homo sapiens may have appeared about 50, B.C.E. The oldest Homo sapiens fossils that anthropologists have found thus far date to around , years ago. That means we can say that modern humans are at least that old. But our lineage likely extends further back in time — we just don’t have the fossils to prove it. The timeline of human evolution outlines the major events in the evolutionary lineage of the modern human species, Homo sapiens, throughout the history of life, beginning some billion years ago down to recent evolution within H. sapiens during and since the Last Glacial Period.
This has enabled us to utilise the food resources found in the wide variety of environments we inhabit. The fuller braincase also results in almost no post-orbital constriction or narrowing behind the eye sockets.
This skull also shows that the skull is made of many bones that tightly join along lines called sutures. The sutures begin to fuse from about the age of 17 and some fuse more quickly than others.
In very old age, all the sutures are completely hidden by bone tissue. The basilar suture on the base of the skull is particularly useful when aging an individual.
It closes between years of age. This is a 32,year-old skull discovered in in Cro-Magnon rockshelter, Les Eyzies, France.
This adult male represents the oldest known skull of a modern human from western Europe. Cro-Magnon skeletons have proportions similar to those of modern Africans rather than modern Europeans.
This suggests that the Cro-Magnons had migrated from a warmer climate and had a relatively recent African ancestry.
This skull of an adult male has developed relatively modern features including a higher forehead although it still retains some archaic features including a brow ridge and slightly projecting face.
This specimen and others from the Middle East are the oldest known traces of modern humans outside of Africa. They prove that Homo sapiens had started to spread out of Africa by , years ago, although it may be that these remains represent a population that did not expand beyond this region — with migrations to the rest of the world occurring later, about , years ago.
Age is uncertain, but at least 15, years old. This skull lacks the typically northern Asian features found in modern populations from those regions, lending support to popular theories that such features only arose in the last years.
Homo sapiens background. Some scientists prefer to place these fossils in a separate species, Homo helmei. Homo sapiens sapiens is the name given to our species if we are considered a sub-species of a larger group.
The Neanderthals were called Homo sapiens neanderthalensis in this scheme. Close Modal Dialog. Stay in the know Uncover the secrets of the Australian Museum with our monthly emails.

The transition to modern humans. The first modern humans in Southeast Asi. Important specimens: Late early modern Homo sapiens Liujiang — a skull discovered in in Guanxi province, South China.
Aurignac — skull discovered in Aurignac, France. The first Aurignac fossils were accidentally found in A workman digging a trench in a hillside found a cave that had been blocked by rock but after clearing away the debris he found 17 skeletons.
The skeletons were taken to a local cemetery for burial but later investigations indicated that the skeletons were actually up to 10, years old.
Cro-Magnon 1 — a 32,year-old skull discovered in in Cro-Magnon rockshelter, Les Eyzies, France. Important specimens: Early modern Homo sapiens Herto — a ,year-old partial skull discovered in in Herto, Ethiopia.
This skull from an adult male and those of another adult and a child were found in and publicly announced in They are some of the oldest fossils of modern Homo sapiens yet discovered.
They show a suite of modern human traits, mixed with archaic and early modern features. Also of significance are cut marks on the child's skull.
These were made when the bone was still fresh in a manner indicating ritual practice. The skull also appeared 'polished' from repeated handling before it was laid in the ground.
A geographically explicit genetic model of worldwide human-settlement history American Journal of Human Genetics 79 , —, quote: "Currently available genetic and archaeological evidence is generally interpreted as supportive of a recent single origin of modern humans in East Africa.
However, this is where the near consensus on human settlement history ends, and considerable uncertainty clouds any more detailed aspect of human colonization history".

See also human evolution. The name Homo sapiens was applied in by the father of modern biological classification see taxonomy , Carolus Linnaeus.
It had long been known that human beings physically resemble the primates more closely than any other known living organisms, but at the time it was a daring act to classify human beings within the same framework used for the rest of nature.
Linnaeus, concerned exclusively with similarities in bodily structure, faced only the problem of distinguishing H. Following the ancestors of modern human beings into the distant past raises the question of what is meant by the word human.
But what of the extinct members of the human tribe Hominini , who were clearly not H. There is no definitive answer to this question. Although human evolution can be said to involve all those species more closely related to H.
