When did Homo sapiens sapiens live?

ANSWER . Modern man is Homo sapiens , sometimes referred to as Homo sapiens sapiens , to distinguish us from archaic Homo sapiens or possible subspecies of Homo sapiens , including Neanderthal man. Some African fossils that may be archaic Homo sapiens , are sometimes referred to as Homo sapiens rhodesiensis . Various speciments have been dated to between 200,000 and 400,000 years ago. . The earliest modern Homo sapiens fossils have been dated to around 200,000 years ago. This has been confirmed by two separate DNA methods, using 'non-recombining' sections of the genome. . they actually lived about 100,000 years to 35,000 ago

Homo sapien sapiens or Homo sapiens sapiens?

It depends on whether you think Neandertals and modern humans were members of the same species, in which case it would be: Homo sapiens sapiens and Homo sapiens neanderthalensis (i.e., they were simply different SUB species) OR whether you think they were two separate species: Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis . Homo = our genus name 'sapiens' = is our species name. Note that you ALWAYS write the genus name with the species name because two species might have the same species name. For example, Pan paniscus and Ateles paniscus .

What genus is the organism Homo Sapien in?

Scientists use a binomial convention in naming all organisms including humans. Binomial just means two names, the same as people have a first name (John) and last name (Doe). In binomial convention the first name is the genus ( Homo ) and the second name is the species ( sapien ). Only the genus name gets a capital as the genus is a group of organisms which are all similar, the species name is special to just that organism, it doesn't get a capital. Both the genus and species names are normally printed in italics, when handwritten they are underlined.

How did homo sapiens differ from homo erectus?

Homo erectus are different from Homo sapiens in many ways. First, Homo erectus has a thick skull and a forward sloped forehead .In comparison, Homo sapiens have thinner skulls and their heads don't slope forwards. Homo sapiens have advanced verbal and written language however, Homo erectus does communicate with a less complicated verbal language which involves simple gestures and hand motions along with simple noises like grunting or other small sounds. Homo sapiens also have more sophisticated tools such as stoves, beds, microwaves, guns etc. While Homo erectus man only had less advanced tools such as bows, axes, flint and others. Homo sapiens also have religion, and ceremonies. Some religions homo sapiens have are, Christianity, Hindu, Judaism and many others. Homo erectus didn't have any religion because they couldn't communicate with sophisticated verbal language. Homo erectus had no clothes but, homo sapiens did. Overall, homo sapiens differ from homo erectus because of many reasons such as appearance, tools, language, and many others.

What weapons did homo sapiens sapiens use?

homo sapiens is the scientific term (genus and species) for human beings. Human beings have used everything for weapons from pointy sticks and rocks to nuclear weapons. Could you be a bit more specific? If you are referring to cavemen, then spears, bow & arrows, and axes.

Why is Homo in Homo sapiens capitalized?

This is the convention in the system of binomial nomenclature (two-part names) developed by Linnaeus in the 18th century. In the Linnaean system, the first word of a binomial names the genus (a group of similar and closely related species) and is capitalized, and the second word names the species within that genus. The genus name, but not the species name, can be abbreviated to its first letter. In some cases the binomial may be extended by the addition of a subspecies name. In current anthropological thinking, the genus Homo contains modern humans ( H. sapiens ) as well as the extinct species H. erectus , H. habilis and H. eraster , and perhaps several others whose status is still in dispute. Neanderthal Man is variously considered a separate species, H. neanderthalensis , or a subspecies of H. sapiens . In the latter case, Neanderthals are known as H. sapiens neanderthalensis , and modern humans as H. sapiens sapiens .

What did the homo sapiens accomplish?

Homo Sapiens discovered plenty. I'll try to help c: 1.) They discovered agriculture (farming). Because of Agriculture they were no longer nomads (People who moved around a lot and didn't stay in one place.) Now that they were no longer nomads they had more time to develop things such as complex language. (The way we communicate by speaking words in our generation) and they also developed writing. Hope it helped you, :D

Did homo sapien sapiens have a language?

I believe that you're talking about the early humans... because we're Homo sapiens. I don't think they did, but they may have had some sort of body language or starting to make formations of the mouth then.
