The Species of Human Evolution
As part of a larger Thinkquest website on human origins, this index of hominids
gives a thumbnail sketch of many of the precursors of man. Several of the descriptions include drawings of specific hominids, including Australopithecus afarensis, the species of the famous “Lucy.” A short quiz reviews the information. Although the information is brief, it is a good jumping-off point for further study.
