At the onset of the 20th century, most scientists had accepted the great antiquity of the earth, the theory of evolution and that humanity had evolved from an ape ancestor, but by 1908 the fossil evidence of early man was scarce.
Biologists included principles from genetics in evolutionary theory during the 1920s and 1930s.
sapiens (including Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon) (see the modern taxonomic classification of humans).
This formed the foundation of the neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory.
Once multicellular organisation became possible as atmospheric oxygen levels rose, the early multicellular organisms rapidly diverged into many adaptive forms.
Mass extinction events and an organism's unique adaptations mark the history of evolution, both of which may lead to adaptive radiation.
Evolution only gained significant momentum after the theory of evolution, published by Charles Darwin in November 1859, implied that man was merely another product of life on earth, with origins shared by the other creatures and not its ultimate purpose. Wallace proposed the same theory at a joint presentation to the Linnaean Society in London .
Without the universal acceptance of the principle of evolution, there is no chance for the serious proposal of holism.
Living orders of placental mammals , be it bats, humanity, whales or camels, have as their common ancestor a small insectivore creature that went through a major phase of adaptive radiation during the Early Cenozoic Era .
