(L.Q – 1998), Differentiate between I.4 (a) Biological and Cultural factors in human evolution. The core idea of cultural evolution is that cultural change constitutes an evolutionary process that shares fundamental similarities with – but also differs in key ways from – genetic evolution. Culture is a unique feature of human evolutionary process and humans have modified their biological evolution using culture as a tool. This in turn requires a period of training in the use of that The female is biologically more valuable than the male: she bears and If he senses are sharper than men's. Women can distinguish colors better, have sharper hearing, have a better sense of smell. Because of this unique feature, the human evolution has been more rapid than that of other species.

The cultural impact of evolutionary theory Scientific acceptance and extension to other disciplines. The difficulty is identifying how and if one is influencing the other. It is a process that occurred in the hominid line since the divergence of last common hominoid ancestor shared with any living ape. 0. Cultural evolution: These cognitive adaptations give rise to a robust second system of inheritance (cultural evolution) that operates by different transmission rules than genetic inheritance, and can thus produce phenomena not observed in other less cultural species. Biological and Cultural factors in human evolution: Homozinization Process: Homozinization process is the evolutionary transformation of hominoids into hominids. Nervous system- development of brain, PNS, CNS, Encephalization; Skeleton system – erect posture, opposable thumb, Ulnar opposition, Bipedalism; Integumentary system – homeostasis and homeothermy; Digestive … These factors may have contributed to the differing evolution of the male and female brain.
