Human Evolution Within the Tree of Life
Human evolution, like the evolution of any plant, animal, or single-celled organism, occurred within a branching tree of life in which all organisms are related to one another. Our understanding of the shape of the tree is informed by fossil evidence as well as by comparing DNA sequences of diverse living organisms. This poster illustrates those relationships, as well as discussing the evidence for ongoing human evolution, and the timeline of hominid evolution over the past 6 million years.
