  • Bose I – Dr Robert Winston
  • But those like the earlier species of Paranthropus boisei , whose behaviour was specialised for survival in only one niche,didn't manage to make it. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/2862019.stm Homo heidelbergensis where fierce hunters with sophisticated tools who lived in close-knit family groups. They can only see the world as it is. The habilis have taken a different approach to survival. They don't have the specialisms of the boisei but instead have developed into the archetypal jack-of-all-trades, inquisitive scavengers prepared to try almost anything to survive. Tough, active, gregarious and noisy, they are always on the move and always alert to the possibility of a meal. But in the near drought of the dry season the habilis are struggling. It seems as if their way of life cannot help them when conditions are tough. This concentration of ingenuity could have resulted in fundamental changes in the minds of the human population. By a strange twist of fate, the harsh conditions that caused this near extinction may also have allowed the cultural explosion that gave rise to human behaviour as we know it today.

    • 9. 2008 10 billion years 0 4.45b 5.55b Be like the habilis - the archetypal jack-of-all-trades, inquisitive scavengers prepared to try almost anything to survive. Be tough, active, gregarious and noisy, always on the move and always alert to the possibility of a …meal. Don't be like the boisei – whose behaviour was specialised for survival in only one niche, they didn't make it. They live within a strict social structure and are led by a dominant male whose strength and power holds the group together. The boisei 's specialisation has locked them into one way of living, and when their niche no longer exists, neither can they. But the habilis can adapt to a changing world - their generalist trait lives on in us. Two million years ago, evolution tells us…
