Abstract. The type mandible of Dryopithecus fontani,Lartethas been discovered to be not fully development corresponds in dental age to that of a 6-to 8-year-old chimpanzee.

Most of the fossils came from caves, some of which were discovered during mining and. Australopithecines a group of higher primates whose bones were first excavated in the Kalahari Desert (South Africa) in and later in East and Central Africa.

Primates close to the australopithecines lived in South, Southeast, and Southwest Asia. The australopithecines lived at the beginning of the Quaternary (2, years ago) as biped land.

Some claim the earliest is Australopithecus while others say that Australopithecus was nothing more than an ape, not related to humans at all. In Marvin Lubenow’s book, Bones of Contention, he clearly shows that the australopithecine fossils are ape fossils and not those of any human ancestor.

Increased longevity, expressed as number of individuals surviving to older adulthood, represents one of the ways the human life history pattern differs from other primates.

We believe it is a critical demographic factor in the development of human culture. Here, we examine when changes in longevity occurred by assessing the ratio of older to younger adults in four hominid dental samples Cited by:   Older age becomes common late in human evolution.
