Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families and kinship networks to political states. This means that people with hemochromatosis type 4 have a genetic change (mutation or pathogenic variant) in one copy of the SLC40A1 gene in each cell of the body.We inherit one copy of every gene from our mother and the other from our father. The definition of happiness is a common philosophical topic. [349] Assigning ethnicity to certain population is complicated as even within common ethnic designations there can be a diverse range of subgroups and the makeup of these ethnic groups can change over time at both the collective and individual level. [29][30], The closest living relatives of humans are chimpanzees and bonobos (genus Pan),[31][32] as well as gorillas (genus Gorilla). [347][348] Ethnicity is separate from the concept of race, which is based on physical characteristics, although both are socially constructed. Pathogens can also be spread by indirect transmission , which involves contact with a surface or substance that is contaminated with pathogens. [136][187][188][189], Current genetic research has demonstrated that human populations native to the African continent are the most genetically diverse. Modern humans, however, have a great capacity for altering their habitats by means of technology, irrigation, urban planning, construction, deforestation and desertification. [122] Humans have the largest number of eccrine sweat glands among species. Dryopithecus, genus of extinct ape that is representative of early members of the lineage that includes humans and other apes. Sickle cell anemia, which may provide increased resistance to malaria, is frequent in populations where malaria is endemic. [305] Beyond simply passing down knowledge the use and sharing of imaginative fiction through stories might have helped develop humans capabilities for communication and increased the likelihood of securing a mate. [287] Unlike the limited systems of other animals, human language is open—an infinite number of meanings can be produced by combining a limited number of symbols. [342], Society is the system of organizations and institutions arising from interaction between humans. While many of the common variants found in populations outside of Africa are also found on the African continent, there are still large numbers which are private to these regions, especially Oceania and the Americas. Humans are not divided biologically into distinct continental types or racial genetic clusters. Other articles where Kenyapithecus is discussed: Louis Leakey: …team discovered the remains of Kenyapithecus, another link between apes and early man that lived about 14 million years ago. [100], In 2004, some 2.5 billion out of 6.3 billion people (39.7%) lived in urban areas. There are 4 types of genetic diseases. The reasons that lead to this type of migration include the search for better education or the pursuit of a better economic opportunity in another area. Though most of human existence has been sustained by hunting and gathering in band societies,[14] many human societies transitioned to sedentary agriculture approximately 10,000 years ago,[15] domesticating plants and animals, thus enabling the growth of civilization. [351] Ethnic groupings can play a powerful role in the social identity and solidarity of ethno-political units. As there are chromosomal differences between females and males, some X and Y chromosome related conditions and disorders only affect either men or women. More importantly, the brain to body ratio is much higher in humans than in chimpanzees, and humans have a significantly more developed cerebral cortex, with a larger number of neurons. [104] Currently, through land development, combustion of fossil fuels, and pollution, humans are thought to be the main contributor to global climate change. [citation needed] The early bipedals eventually evolved into the australopithecines and later the genus Homo. Human habitation within these hostile environments is restrictive and expensive, typically limited in duration, and restricted to scientific, military, or industrial expeditions. source: [285] Gender roles have varied historically, and challenges to predominant gender norms have recurred in many societies. They are the Brahmanic Sudraswho, born in chains, are doomed to live and die in shackles of low organic quality. Fossils of anatomically modern humans that date from the Middle Paleolithic (about 200,000 years ago) include the Omo-Kibish I remains of Ethiopia[41][42][43] and the fossils of Herto Bouri, Ethiopia. Ethnologists have generally divided human beings into five distinct classes. Long-term continuous human presence in space has been the case in orbit around Earth, uninterrupted since the initial crew of the International Space Station, arriving on 31 October 2000,[96] with peaks of thirteen humans at the same time in space. [21] The native English term man can refer to the species generally (a synonym for humanity) as well as to human males. [329] In 2015 the majority were Christian followed by Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists,[330] although Islam is growing the most rapidly and likely to overtake Christianity by 2035.
