Ecology is the study of the interactions between an organism and its environment. The study of how ecological factors cause changes in an organism throughout its history is evolutionary ecology. Sociobiology is a field of biology that aims to examine and explain social behavior in terms of draws from disciplines including psychology, ethology, anthropology, evolution, zoology, archaeology, and population the study of human societies, sociobiology is closely allied to evolutionary anthropology, human behavioral ecology and evolutionary psychology. Studies on individual energetic status therefore form an important part of biological research areas such as ecology, behavioural ecology and reproductive biology (e.g. –). Direct measurement of energetic status has, however, been limited so far for wild and/or free . This is a gram jasperite cobble with natural chipping and wear patterns that make it look like a crude rendition of a human face. The pebble, found some distance from any possible natural source, was in the possesion of a female Australopithecus africanus, an early hominid living between 3 and 2 .

Therefore, understanding chimpanzee hunting behavior and ecology may tell us a great deal about the behavior and ecology of those earliest hominids. In the early s, when Jane Goodall began her research on chimpanzees in Gombe National Park (Tanzania), it was thought that chimpanzees were herbivores.

Opinions vary but one interpretation of the vastly expanded hominid postcranial sample from 4 to 13 M.Y. hominids leads to the following working hypotheses: (1) The average female of the earliest known species of Hominidae, Australopithecus afarensis, weighed about 29 kg and the male, 45 kg.(2) Average female body weight remains between 29 and 34 kg in all species of hominids before Cited by: New World Primates: Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior - Ebook written by Warren G.

Hence, our emphasis here on evolutionary ecology leads us to recognize that morphological and behavioural variability in time and space are themselves data, and that these data can contribute to a fuller understanding of how evolution has affected fossil hominid populations.

The dawn chorus is a familiar feature of sunrise to any who have ventured out camping, and its function has long puzzled behavioural ecologists. Several hypotheses have been proposed, including the idea that it serves as a paternity guard against rival males who may use the cover of twilight to enter a male’s territory and mate with his partner.

Schaller and Lowther () advocated a hunting hypothesis for understanding hominid evolutionary ecology and sug- gested that the study of modern hunter-gatherers, nonhu- man primates, and social carnivores such as wolves and lions would contribute to an accurate model of early hominid subsistence ecology.

Early hominid brain evolution: a new look at old endocasts. Journal of Human Evolut Unraveling the sociality and ecology of our closest living relatives, the non-human primates. Abstract. During the Early Pleistocene, hominins dispersed from Africa to Eurasia via the Levant.

The presence of African taxa in higher latitudes has been interpreted as indicative of an Africa savanna habitat in the Early Pleistocene of the Levant and as support for the hypothesis that the spread of grasslands into higher latitudes promoted the dispersal of hominins into Eurasia.

ABSTRACTBeginning with Darwin, some have argued that predation on other vertebrates dates to the earliest stages of hominid evolution, and can explain many uniquely human anatomical and behavioral characters.

Other recent workers have focused instead on scavenging, or particular plant foods. Foraging theory suggests that inclusion of any food is influenced by its profitability and distribution. In book: From Tools to Symbols. From Early Hominids to Modern Humans.

This book takes a novel and strongly interdisciplinary approach to the role of meat in the early hominid diet, inviting well-known researchers who study the human fossil record, modern hunter-gatherers, and nonhuman primates to contribute chapters to a volume that integrates these three perspectives.

Since about 4 million years ago, humans have evolved from early hominids to modern humans. Here are 14 species examples from human evolution now extinct. Apes remained in trees for their primary food source. Eventually, grass began to spread in places like the African Savannah.

Introduction. The australopiths (genera Australopithecus and Paranthropus) represent the earliest well-documented diversification of the hominin lineage and include the ancestor of our own genus, Homo (figure 1) [].Understanding the palaeobiological and phylogenetic implications of phenotypic variation in this group is therefore a critical step in the study of human origins [2–4].
