What race do humans belong to?
Today, all humans are classified as belonging to the species Homo sapiens. However, this is not the first species of homininae: the first species of genus Homo, Homo habilis, evolved in East Africa at least 2 million years ago, and members of this species populated different parts of Africa in a relatively short time.
What would you classify humans as?
Our scientific name indicates that we are in the genus and species homo and sapiens. Our family is the hominid, within the order primate, within the class mammal, within the phylum chordate, within the kingdom animalia, within the domain Eukarya.
Is Australoid a race?
Australoid race was a word for the aboriginal people of Australia, Melanesia, and parts of Southeast Asia. In former times, many people divided human beings into four races. These races were called Australoid, Mongoloid, Caucasoid, and Negroid. Today, scientists agree that there is only one human race.
What are the 3 races of humans?
In the last 5,000- 7,000 of years, the geographic barrier split our species into three major races (presented in Figure 9): Negroid (or Africans), Caucasoid (or Europeans) and Mongoloid (or Asians).
What are the 6 species of humans?
Ancient humans: What we know and still don’t know about them
- Homo habilis (“handy” man) Discovered: 1960, officially named in 1964.
- Homo erectus (“upright man”)
- Homo neanderthalensis (the Neanderthal)
- The Denisovans.
- Homo floresiensis (the “hobbit”)
- Homo naledi (“star man”)

What animal is humans closest relative?
The chimpanzee and bonobo are humans’ closest living relatives. These three species look alike in many ways, both in body and behavior. But for a clear understanding of how closely they are related, scientists compare their DNA, an essential molecule that’s the instruction manual for building each species.
Are natives Mongoloid?
The genetic distances between the American Indians and the three major races of man, Caucasoids, Negroids and Mongoloids, were determined by using gene frequency data on 14 blood group and 12 protein loci. The results support the general view that the ancestry of the American Indian is predominantly Mongoloid.
What is the race of an Indian?
Race Categories Asian: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Is Japanese a Mongoloid?
Based on the geographical distribution of the markers and gene flow of Gm ag and ab3st (northern Mongoloid marker genes) from northeast Asia to the Japanese archipelago, the Japanese population belongs basically to the northern Mongoloid group and is thus suggested to have originated in northeast Asia, most likely in
What race is Oceania?
There are basically two Oceanian American groups, that well represent the racial and cultural population of Oceania: Euro-Oceanian Americans (Australian Americans and New Zealand Americans) and the indigenous peoples of Oceania in the United States or Pacific Islander Americans (Chamorro Americans, Samoan Americans,
What are the 5 human races?
Coon, divided humanity into five races:
- Negroid (Black) race.
- Australoid (Australian Aborigine and Papuan) race.
- Capoid (Bushmen/Hottentots) race.
- Mongoloid (Oriental/Amerindian) race.
- Caucasoid (White) race.
