Cory Baker 11-10-09 Section 448 Perm #: 3851763 Anthropology 005 Introduction to Physical Anthropology Problem Set # 6: “Hominin” Evolution and Pre-agricultural Human Ecology 1. The term “hominid” has traditionally been used to refer to species in the line the leads to modern humans after  the divergence between that line and the line that leads to modern chimpanzees. A. Why is the term “hominid” cladistically indefensible?  The term “hominid” is cladistically indefensible because all apes are pongids. B. Draw a cladistic diagram of the modern apes and use it to illustrate your answer to question 1A. C. What global-scale forces are thought to have set the stage for the hominin/pongin divergence? The global-scale forces thought to have set the stage for the hominin/pongin divergence is the new savanna and  woodland habitats.  There were now new types of food available.
