That is not clear to me In the end only homo sapiens survived This is the story of how and why our species survived It wasn't a fore ordained result Luck or randomness plays a large part in evolution The book emphasizes how the homo sapiens brain evolved as it did and the major impact it had on all aspects of our anatomy and psychologyChip Walter is an

    Last Ape Standing ePUB ↠ Last Ape ePUB ß É PDF gamegeek denter.de last kindle, standing free, Last Ape kindle, Last Ape Standing PDFWhy did home sapiens survive and other closely related species such as Neanderthals and Denisovans become extinct? Chip Walters takes up the uestion and provides alternative theories of what could have happened based on contemporary archeological evidence The writing style is lively and non scholarly in a good way at times bordering on the irreverent Walters' descriptions of Neanderthals and how they lived are fascinating It appears that Homo sapiens not only lived in the same vicinity at the same time as Neanderthals but also clearly mated with them as evidenced by the percentage of people whose cells contain Neanderthal DNAFound this book fascinating especially the chapter on consciousness and its impact on the human capacity for inventionAs a coda to this review I recently learned that I am of Neanderthal descent I share 32% of my DNA with the Neanderthal species This calls for a rereading of th

    Last Ape Standing ePUB ↠ Last Ape ePUB ß É PDF gamegeek denter.de last kindle, standing free, Last Ape kindle, Last Ape Standing PDFFirst off I should say that I found this book uite interesting Even though I was somewhat less interested in the evolution considerations and much interested in the paleoanthropology still it was a pretty fascinating read and definitely gave me a slightly different lens through which to peer at my modern existance I did however have a bit of a hard time following the family tree and how each human species connected to others and whether their territory overlapped how they migrated etc There were a few graphics to help with this but I would have appreciated Finally the thing that bothered me most about this book and that I found constantly distracting was how he erased women from his discussions of prehistoric humans Rather than refer to humans in the plural form or use something slightly awkward like he or she or even alternating between she and he he always refers to all the humans as he Further when he describes accomplishments made by modern day humans he
