Hominidae great ape ancestors speciate from the ancestors of the gibbon lesser apes. It had the special adaptations for tree climbing as do present-day humans and other great apes:
Thank you for visiting TheEvolutionOfHuman. My name is Scot, and this website is the online version of my book-in-progress. I am an ordinary person like you not rich or famous who is curious about the world.
A Logarithmic History of Everything. To consider what we can do to make the world a better place.
This is a decade-long project, conceived in and in steady progress since about I am writing TEOH in 10 chapters numbered in reverse, each representing a power of 10 years. Chapter 10 opens with the big bang and other important events of the last ten billion years.
I wrote these two chapters first.
Chapter 5, the last chapter to be written, is in progress and on track for completion by the end of I will then spend making second-draft revisions. You can download each chapter on PDF or read it here. This site is free for an indefinite period of time while the book is in progress.
If you have any interest in science, history, sociology, economics, news, or philosophy, then this book will address matters of concern to you. There are also social network buttons at the bottom of this page to follow or stay in touch with me.

The timeline of human evolution outlines the major events in the development of the human species, Homo sapiens, and the evolution of the human's ancestors.
It includes brief explanations of some of the species, genera, and the higher ranks of taxa that are seen today as possible ancestors of modern humans.
|Striding through the Pliocene||Scientific evidence shows that the physical and behavioral traits shared by all people originated from apelike ancestors and evolved over a period of approximately six million years.|
|Search form||Genetic data based on molecular clock estimates support a Late Miocene ancestry. Various Eurasian and African Miocene primates have been advocated as possible ancestors to the early hominins, which came on the scene during the Pliocene Epoch 5.|
|Background and beginnings in the Miocene||Acquisition of New Genes by Gene Duplication By duplication of the entire genome By duplication of a single chromosome or part of a chromosome By duplication of a single gene or group of genes How can we efficiently connect human-specific genomic changes to phenotypes? Sequencing the genomes of thousands of humans, several archaic humans, and our closest great ape relatives has revealed thousands of loci in the human genome that have experienced accelerated evolution on the human lineage and hundreds more with signatures of recent positive selection.|

Human evolution. Human evolution is the lengthy process of change by which people originated from apelike ancestors. Scientific evidence shows that the physical and behavioral traits shared by all people originated from apelike ancestors and evolved over a period of approximately six million years.
Human evolution is the evolutionary process that led to the emergence of anatomically modern humans, beginning with the evolutionary history of primates – in particular genus Homo – and leading to the emergence of Homo sapiens as a distinct species of the hominid family, the great apes.
Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct primates. Viewed zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing, upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa about , years ago.
