    J Hum Evol 53:443-64. 2007
    ..In particular, hominin species seem to differentially originate and go extinct during periods of extreme climate variability. Results presented in this volume may represent the basis of a new theory of early human evolution in Africa...

    Sharon A Cowling
    Department of Geography, University College London, 26 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AP, UK
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 359:539-47. 2004
    ..We speculate that the Amazonian forest is currently near its critical resiliency threshold, and that even minor climate warming may be sufficient to promote deleterious feedbacks on forest integrity...

    J Hum Evol 53:475-86. 2007
    ..These periods of extreme climate variability may have provided a catalyst for evolutionary change and driven key speciation and dispersal events amongst mammals and hominins in East Africa...
