Relationships between Neanderthalensis and Homo sapien sapiens.
Hello! What relationships do scientists believe existed between Neanderthalensis & Homo sapien sapien?
Can someone help me?
Neanderthals had populated Europe widely from about 130,000 to 28,000 years ago after which they became extinct. It was believed that mating occurred between these species, before Neanderthals became extinct. Here you will find a diagram of modern humans, and how people from certain areas of the world may carry 'Neanderthal genes': http://news.bbc.co....neanderthals_786.gif However, whether they actually mated is now under question. - This will obviously be a hard debate to answer as there are no Neanderthals around today. Hope this helps!
