This article presents a basic taxonomy. other taxonomic considerations: how many species were represented in the diverse sample of small-brained.

This article presents a basic taxonomy. and phylogeny of hominins, but also further explores the factors that confound systematics. subfamily Australopithecinae, becomes invalid under this revised taxonomy; in the context of Linnaean. taxonomy, one cannot nestle a higher-ranked subfamily (Australopithecine) within a lower-ranked tribe. Homo? could they all be accommodated within the single species H. habilis?

Phylogeny of subtribe Australopithecina according to Briggs & Crowther 2008, p. 12.

Phylogeny of subtribe Australopithecina according to Briggs & Crowther 2008, p. 124. Australopithecina. Most scientists maintain that one of the australopithecine species evolved into the genus Homo in Africa around two million years ago. However, there is no consensus on which species: "Determining which species of australopithecine (if any) is ancestral to the genus Homo is a question that is a top priority for many, but one that will likely elude any conclusive answers for years to come.

Some of us please ourselves by thinking we are now groping in a "beta" taxonomy. Turrill thus explicitly excludes from alpha taxonomy various areas of study that he includes within taxonomy as a whole, such as ecology, physiology, genetics, and cytology. An understanding of the biological meaning of variation and of the evolutionary origin of groups of related species is even more important for the second stage of taxonomic activity, the sorting of species into groups of relatives ("taxa") and their arrangement in a hierarchy of higher categories. This activity is what the term classification denotes; it is also referred to as beta taxonomy.

Some removal of marrow bones from kills is indicated, but there is no. .endocranial casts of the Australopithecinae. do not appear to diverge in any material way from existing apes (Zuckerman 1954, p. 305).

Some removal of marrow bones from kills is indicated, but there is no evidence of ‘carrying food home. Doubts about the taxonomic reality of Homo habilis arose right from the start.

A diagram that depicts the hypothetical phylogeny of the taxa under consideration. The points at which lineages diverge represent ancestor taxa to the descendant taxa appearing at the ends of the 'twigs. A taxonomic group whose members are derived from a common ancestor but that does not include all the descendants of that ancestor (cf. monophyletic and polyphyletic). Phenotypic plasticity. The range of variability expressed for a trait of a particular genotype that is a function of environmental variation (reaction norm).
