Compare and contrast Australopithecus with Homo
Compare and contrast Australopithecus with Homo. Use at least genus as examples and look at diet, locomotion,cranial changes,cranial capacity, behavior.
Australopithecines are considered to be the missing link between a fossil line of apes and genus Homo . They had smaller cranial capacity compared to Homo habilis, while the latter had a less protruding jaw.
Brain volume of Homo habilis was close to 600ml, slightly more than the Australopithicines.
A comparison of their skulls also reveals that the protruding jaw line showed some shortening in genus Homo .
There was also reduction in the prominence of brow-ridge in Homo habilis , and more rounded appearance of zygomatic arch (cheek bone).
