Controversy About Homo Erectus Homo erectus is quite similar to homo sapiens in the way they are studied. Not many know the difference about them says the anthropologist Adam Van Arsdale, creating a controversy between the two. Yes we may all have the same genetics but we must understand the importance from the first human fossils up to modern skulls because we still share the same ecology. The main idea we must look at is the body is the same as before we just learned to adapt through the environment we are in, that is how the homo erectus is studied.

    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.
