100,000 years ago on earth there were several hominin groups, or bipedal human like species. 60,000 years ago homo sapiens began to move out of Africa and encountered these other species.
All of which evolved in Africa, all had left Africa at various times. For 10,000 years evidence suggests these groups lived along side each other. DNA evidence shows that all of these groups interbreed with the other groups.
Neanderthals (in Europe and North West Asia)
Homo floresiensis (Indonesia)
modern humans (homo sapiens) who dwelled in Africa.
Today only homo sapiens are left, why? Was the extinction of these other hominin groups due to direct competition, natural disaster, disease or what?
