[Type the document title] [Year] Anthropology 005 Introduction to Physical Anthropology Problem Set # 7: 1. At some point, some hominin population gave rise to the earliest Homo . A. Will it be easy or difficult to assign various fossil forms to either Homo or the ancestral genus? Explain. It would be easy seeing that there are certain characteristics the “homo” holds. The brains  for homo started increasing dramatically, therefore the skulls had to compensate for this so  one example we could look for is enlarged skulls as well as many other characteristics. B. In what ways do Homo and earlier hominins differ? Homo are completely bipedal, where as early hominins suggested bipedality, but it was  not concrete. Homo have larger brains than early hominins.  C. Then, can you suggest some defensible (cladistic/phylogenetic) criteria for deciding what forms belong in Homo ?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
