Archaeologists have uncovered some old bones that may tell us a bit more about our own ancient ancestors. They've unearthed a partial skeleton that reveals our ancestors were muscular creatures with a gorilla-like upper body that were adaptive to their environment.
Scientists found out that man's best friends have originated in Europe. Researchers examined genetic materials, which pointed towards their origin from European wolves tamed by nomadic hunters and gatherers.
How life came about from inanimate sets of chemicals is still a mystery. While we may never be certain which chemicals existed on prebiotic Earth, we can study the biomolecules we have today to give us clues about what happened three billion years ago.
A newly discovered 1.8 million-year-old skull from Eastern Europe has been pitched as disproving a decades-old paradigm in human evolution.
What do your skull and the way you walk have in common? Quite a lot, according to anthropologists. It turns out that there's a direct link between upright two-legged walking and the position of the foramen magnum, a hole in the base of the skull that transmits the spinal cord.
Researchers solved the mystery behind the evolution of the present day society using Mathematical model.
About 520 million years ago, there was an explosion of animal life. Species began to evolve and change, forming the massive variety of creatures that we see today. Now, scientists have revealed that it was a combination of interlinked factors rather than a single underlying cause that led to this ev...
Researchers from McGill University say that birds have evolved from a group of small, meat-eating theropod dinosaurs called maniraptorans that existed about 150 million years ago.
Evolution helps drive the emergence of new species. Yet exactly how new animals and plants arise has baffled scientists for years. Now, researchers have taken a closer look at how new species emerge, revealing that it may not be reproductive barriers that are the driving force behind speciation.
There are more than 5,000 species of mammals alive today and most people would argue that they are some of the most successful animals on Earth.
Scientists may have learned a little more about the process of evolution through tiny grains of "sand." They're using the minute fossils of microscopic aquatic creatures called planktonic foraminifera to learn a bit more about how life formed.
Are you selfish? Then you may not get along with evolution. Scientists have discovered new evidence that evolution didn't favor the selfish, which disproves a theory popularized in 2012 that seemed to indicate the opposite.
