human ancestors bones strong
[reading] researchers olduvai gorge in Tanzania world heritage fossil site found some bones of human ancestors - including arms, hands, legs and feet to pieces, the fossils dating back to 1.34 million years ago.
The daily mail reported that recently one of our ancestors of bone research reveals their ability to adapt to the environment is stronger than previously thought.Human ancestors have strong jaw and bones, and they still muscles strong individuals, with similar gorilla.Researchers olduvai gorge in Tanzania world heritage fossil site found some bones of human ancestors - including arms, hands, legs and feet to pieces, the fossils dating back to 1.34 million years ago.The skeletal remains belonged to boydii alongside (Paranthropus boisei), they live with the direct ancestors of human in Africa.
The researchers believe that these creatures 1.1 1.4 meters high, unusually strong body, have developed skeletal framework.The study, published in the journal of the journal public library of comprehensive represents bowman's alongside people in East Africa one of the most recent activity event before extinction.
"This is the first time we found the skeletal remains indicate that this ancient athletic before far beyond imagination, this is mainly combines land bipedal movement and some conclusion after the comprehensive consideration of arboreal behavior.", an associate professor at the university of Colorado Denver, anthropologists, Charles musyoka (Charles Musiba) said.They seem to have a perfect formation of the forearm muscles, and can be used to climb, elaborate operation and all other behavior."
"We know they are very strong," professor musyoka ba said."They found how strong is unprecedented, the body, the more the more strong ability to adapt to the environment."
In 1959, Marie representative (Mary Leakey) for the first time in northern Tanzania found boydii alongside the first deputy of the skull.Although boydii alongside people because of its huge jaw and the cranium is famous, but the ancient human species in other parts of the body building is still unknown, this situation until recently was broken.
From 2010 to 2011 in Mr. Dewey excavations, the team found a huge adult individual parts of the skeleton, including a lot of teeth and bones.Bowman's alongside people is called the australopithecine part of the department of human blood relatives, including the famous 3 million - year - old fossils of Ethiopia Lucy, she is considered by some people as the matriarch of modern humans.
About 2.3 million years ago, australopithecine into homo - produced modern homo sapiens - and alongside people who belong to two classes, alongside people belong to the final extinction.In the absence of other evidence of skeletal remains, people often assume that boydii alongside human bones is similar to ancient species australopithecus."We begin to understand this particular species individual physiology, and he is how to adapt to the environment," said professor musyoka ba."We already know about the food they eat, but it is omnivorous animals tend to plant - but now we get more information: how they walk, at the same time we also know that they can climb trees."
The size of the arm bones show that they have strong forearms and strong upper body."This is another branch in our ancestors genealogy," professor musyoka ba said."They appeared later than other human beings, so the question is, what happened? We are going to further study their biological mechanics, to find out other information about the creature."
In the summer of 2014, the bones will be a huge part of the human origins in dar es salaam, Tanzania exhibition.More than a museum exhibition including Spain burgos museum of human evolution, the Madrid region archaeological museum and the national museum in dar es salaam.
Every found to help scientists understand how humans evolved and over time to adapt to the surrounding environment.The fossils of "we found that, the more we can better understand the history of these species."Musyoka, the professor said.
