Biological Anthropology Chapter Guide – Chaps 13-15 Know the species as they are grouped (as we did in class). You will not be asked to distinguish among species in a pair or a group. (I. e., don’t waste time memorizing details that distinguish Ardipithecus from Kenyanthropus or Paranthropus boisei from P. robustus.) Know details about the names in bold.
Instead of thought questions, here’s a thought diagram. On the timeline:
1. Draw the Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Holocene epochs (draw lines across page at appropriate dates).
2. Along the left margin: Add the names of each epoch in small print (leave room for the next step).
3. On the left side: Add the hominin groups.
4. On the right side: Add the hominin species to where they belong in time.
5. Wherever it fits: Draw a line from each marker on the time line to someplace you have space. Add the “First” of hominin anatomy that occurred at that time, along with a fossil example. Http://instruction2.mtsac.edu/elawlor/mosaic
