The evolutionary lineage leading to later Homo, including Neanderthals and H. sapiens, split from a population of H. erectus, probably living in Africa. With future fossil discoveries across the Old World, this geographic interpretation for H. erectus origins may change, but the phylogenetic hypothesis for its relationship to humans is unlikely to be overturned soon.
The Dmanisi fossils (Fig. 6), although attributed to H. erectus, do not share some key features with conspecifics in Africa and Asia, yet they do share some primitive features with H. habilis, like KNM-ER 1813 and OH 13 (Rightmire and Lordkipanidze 2009). This interpretation supports the hypothesis that H. erectus descended from H. habilis. However, there is a new hypothesis for the biogeographical origins of H. erectus based on the morphological affinities of the Dmanisi fossils: Since the Dmanisi hominins appear to have been the first post-H. habilis hominins to disperse out of East Africa, H. erectus evolved outside of Africa, possibly in western Asia (Rightmire and Lordkipanidze 2009). The early dates in Indonesia could be taken to support this hypothesis and, potentially, so can new H. erectus remains dated to 1.7 million years ago from the Yuanmou Basin in southwest China (Zhu et al. 2008).
Explore the challenges scientists face when classifying hominid fossils by using this database to classify your own collection of 10 mystery fossils. Identify your fossils by comparing their features to known hominid fossils, and defend your classifications with peers. By using known facts about fossils to define hominid species, take part in the ongoing scientific process of discovering human origins.
This book is about ageism. Ageism is manifested in the way we think, feel and act towards age and ageing. It is directed towards people of any age group and can be both positive and negative. But- in this book our focus is on the complex and often negative construction of old age. The book includes four different sections: the concept and origins of ageism, the manifestations and consequences of ageism, interventions to target ageism and ways to research ageism. The present introductory chapter concerns the development of the concept of ageism and micro-, meso- and macro-level theories on the occurence of ageism.
As scientists, we want to look into the origins of ageism (e.g., how does ageism come about?) and we want to describe the manifestations and consequences of ageism (e.g., what does ageism look like and what follows from ageism?). We are also in need of practical tools with which to study ageism and to adequately monitor its occurrence. This is not enough, however. As scientists, we are also interested in interventions against ageism (e.g., what works best?). Consequently, this book is composed of different sections. The first section contains five chapters on the concept and aetiology of ageism. These chapters provide a review of potential ways to conceptualise and explain the occurrence of ageism. The second section is focused on the manifestations and consequences of ageism. This section is the largest in the book and contains ten chapters, which range in scope from the micro- to the macro-level, including different settings and groups exposed to ageism. The third section includes five chapters dedicated to interventions to fight ageism. Four of the chapters discuss legal and policy interventions, whereas the latter chapter is on interventions in the field of education. Finally, a section on researching ageism is devoted to knowledge gained by quantitative and qualitative researchers with regard to research in the field of ageism. This section contains seven chapters which address philosophical, methodological, and cultural issues concerning research in the field of ageism.
