ADVANTAGES

The idea that the major adaptations in our evolutionary history arose in response to environmental variability and shifting selection pressures (variability selection) leads to a new understanding of human evolution. The figure above illustrates how the emergence of human characteristics from 6 million years ago to present conferred benefits that improved the ability of our ancestors to survive unpredictable and novel environments. Ma = million years ago; ka = thousand year ago.
