EVOLUTION UNDER WAY  ~3 million years

Australopithecus bahrelghazali is a fossil hominin that was first discovered in 1993 by the paleontologist Michel Brunet in the Bahr el Ghazal valley near Koro Toro, in Chad, that Brunet named Abel. It was dated using Berylium based Radiometric dating as living circa. 3.6 million years ago. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)

Kenyanthropus platyops is a 3.5 to 3.2 million year old (Pliocene) extinct hominin species that was discovered in Lake Turkana, Kenya in 1999 by Justus Erus, who was part of Meave Leakey's team.  The fossil found features a broad flat face with a toe bone that suggests it probably walked upright. Teeth are intermediate between typical human and typical ape forms. Kenyanthropus platyops, which means "Flat-faced man of Kenya" (a name given by Meave Leakey), is the only described species in the genus. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)

演化還在進行中 ~3百萬年前

羚羊河南方古猿是一個人科的化石,由古生物學家米歇爾.布魯在1993年首次發現,在查德,近於科羅托羅的加札勒山谷,布魯將之命名為阿貝爾。使用鈹元素的放射定年法,判定其存在於36十萬年前。

肯尼亞平臉人是在35十萬年到32十萬年前(上新世)滅絕的人種,由賈斯特斯.埃呂斯在1999年,從肯亞的圖爾卡納湖發現的。他是米芙.利基團隊的成員。其化石特徵為寬闊平坦的臉,以及其趾骨,顯示其可能是直立行走的。牙齒型態介於人與猿之間。肯尼亞平臉人,意為肯亞的平臉人”(由米芙.利基所命名),是肯尼亞人屬中唯一已知物種。
