The Archaeology News Network: Oldest hominin DNA sequenced | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Using novel techniques to extract and study ancient DNA researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, have determined an almost complete mitochondrial genome sequence of a 400,000-year-old representative of the genus Homo from Sima de los Huesos, a unique cave site in Northern Spain, and found that it is related to the mitochondrial genome of Denisovans, extinct relatives of Neandertals in...

The Archaeology News Network: New fossil species found in Mozambique reveals new data on ancient mammal relatives

The Archaeology News Network: New fossil species found in Mozambique reveals new data on ancient mammal relatives | Aux origines | Scoop.it

In the remote province of Niassa, Mozambique, a new species and genus of fossil vertebrate was found. The species is a distant relative of living mammals and is approximately 256 million years old. This new species belongs to a group of animals called synapsids. Synapsida includes a number of extinct lineages that dominated the communities on land in the Late Permian (260-252 million years ago), as well as living mammals and their...

The last common ancestor of Man and Ape was not a knuckle-walking, tree-swinging hominid resembling today's chimpanzee, said a study Tuesday challenging some long-held theories of human evolution. 13 fossil fragments--broken femurs, bits of lower jaw, and several teeth--of Orrorin tugenensis [Credit: Martin Pickford, Brigitte Senut]Rather than a prototype chimp as commonly believed, our common forefather was an ape unlike any that...

The Archaeology News Network: Ancient dogs found buried in pots in Egypt | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Archaeologists have found some of the most curious canine burials ever unearthed in Egypt — two well preserved dogs buried in pots some 3,000 years ago. A 2009 excavation revealed several jars containing animal burials. Of the many jars that were recovered, only 13 have been properly investigated. Of these, two contained "Houdini" and "Chewie," two well preserved animals -- most likely dogs -- with their fur largely intact [Credit:...

An analysis of the femur of one of the oldest human ancestors reveals the six-million-year-old "Millenium Man" was bipedal but lived in the trees. The research, led by Stony Brook University researchers and their team of international paleoanthropologists, could provide additional insight to the origins of human bipedalism and is published in Nature Communications.

The Archaeology News Network: Fossils clarify the origins of wasps and their kin | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Wasps, bees, ants and relatives comprise the megadiverse insect order Hymenoptera, the third most speciose animal group on Earth, far surpassing the number of known vertebrate species. All the four most diverse orders of animals (beetles, butterflies, wasps, and true flies) belong to the group of insects with complete metamorphosis, i.e. having a dormant pupa, jointly known as Holometabola. Other holometabolans are lacewings,...

The Archaeology News Network: Domestication of dogs may have elaborated on pre-existing capacity of wolves to learn from humans

The Archaeology News Network: Domestication of dogs may have elaborated on pre-existing capacity of wolves to learn from humans | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Wolves can learn from observing humans and pack members where food is hidden and recognize when humans only pretend to hide food, reports a study for the first time in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology. These findings imply that when our ancestors started to domesticate dogs, they could have built on a pre-existing ability of wolves to learn from others, not necessarily pack members.
