[HTML][HTML] Genetic history of an archaic hominin group from Denisova Cave in Siberia

…, S Talamo, MV Shunkov, AP Derevianko, JJ Hublin… - Nature, 2010 -
Abstract Using DNA extracted from a finger bone found in Denisova Cave in southern
Siberia, we have sequenced the genome of an archaic hominin to about 1.9-fold coverage.
This individual is from a group that shares a common origin with Neanderthals. This

[HTML][HTML] The derived FOXP2 variant of modern humans was shared with Neandertals

…, W Enard, RE Green, HA Burbano, JJ Hublin… - Current biology, 2007 - Elsevier
Although many animals communicate vocally, no extant creature rivals modern humans in
language ability. Therefore, knowing when and under what evolutionary pressures our
capacity for language evolved is of great interest. Here, we find that our closest extinct

[PDF][PDF] The origin of anatomically modern humans in Western Europe

CB Stringer, JJ Hublin… - … : a world survey of the fossil …, 1984 -
Oniy in the last 30 years has the focus of discussions about the origin of anatomically
modern (am) Homo sapiens shifted from western Europe. The reasons for the dominant
position of the western European fossils are not difficult to find. First, much of the significant

Genome sequence of a 45,000-year-old modern human from western Siberia

…, K Douka, TFG Higham, M Slatkin, JJ Hublin… - Nature, 2014 -
We present the high-quality genome sequence of a 45,000-year-old modern human male
from Siberia. This individual derives from a population that lived before—or simultaneously
with—the separation of the populations in western and eastern Eurasia and carries a similar

The origin of Neandertals

JJ Hublin - Proceedings of the National Academy of …, 2009 - National Acad Sciences
Abstract Western Eurasia yielded a rich Middle (MP) and Late Pleistocene (LP) fossil record
documenting the evolution of the Neandertals that can be analyzed in light of recently
acquired paleogenetical data, an abundance of archeological evidence, and a well-known

Earliest evidence of modern human life history in North African early Homo sapiens

…, S Eggins, M Boutakiout, JJ Hublin - Proceedings of the …, 2007 - National Acad Sciences
Abstract Recent developmental studies demonstrate that early fossil hominins possessed
shorter growth periods than living humans, implying disparate life histories. Analyses of
incremental features in teeth provide an accurate means of assessing the age at death of

Climatic changes, paleogeography, and the evolution of the Neandertals

JJ Hublin - Neandertals and modern humans in Western Asia, 2002 - Springer
Mainly because of historical reasons, Europe has provided the largest series of Middle and
Upper Pleistocene hominids. Many of the sites which yielded these specimens can be
placed in a reliable environmental and chronological framework, and they allow us to

Additional evidence on the use of personal ornaments in the Middle Paleolithic of North Africa

…, H Mienis, D Richter, JJ Hublin… - Proceedings of the …, 2009 - National Acad Sciences
Abstract Recent investigations into the origins of symbolism indicate that personal
ornaments in the form of perforated marine shell beads were used in the Near East, North
Africa, and SubSaharan Africa at least 35 ka earlier than any personal ornaments in Europe.
