Examples of sapiens in a Sentence

  1. Martin Tobias Lithner:

    No species can withstand all the infinite factors to which it can be exposed. Homo sapiens is closer to mass death than other species of the same geographical distribution, largely because we hunt it ourselves.

  2. Mathew Stewart:

    It is only after the last interglacial [ period ] with the return of cooler conditions that we have definitive evidence for Neanderthals moving into the region, the footprints, therefore, most likely represent humans, or Homo sapiens.

  3. Rosy Cole:

    “Aberjhani's writing blows the mind and frees the psyche of any rigid assumptions about ancestral heritage. Here, our collective experience is starkly rendered. The transparency of one culture overlays another, and another, to form the daguerreotype of possibilities that is homo sapiens, interacting, almost like the elements themselves, with the created world and modified only by context and its imperatives.”-- from Circles and Arcs

  4. Christopher Stringer:

    These methods were applied to 95 representative fossils and over 600 metrical and morphological traits, and the analyses revealed 3 main clades of later Pleistocene humans: H. sapiens, H. neanderthalensis and a group containing Harbin and other Chinese fossils such as Dali, Jinniushan and Xiahe.

  5. Chris Stringer:

    This in turn may reinforce the idea that the successful spread of modern humans from Africa after about 60,000 years ago played at least a role, if not the most significant role, in the physical extinction of other forms of humans outside of Africa, however, at least some of those other forms of human did not go completely extinct, since their DNA lives on in us today through ancient interbreeding between the archaic and early modern populations. This leaves open the fascinating possibility that even floresiensis might have contributed some of its DNA to living groups in the region, if there was at least a short overlap between floresiensis and sapiens about 50,000 years ago.
