5 Signs Humans Are Still Evolving
Despite modern technology and industrialization, humans are still changing as a species, even today. Here are a few indications that our evolution isn't over.

Lucy's bone scans point to life in the trees - Cosmos Magazine
While Australopithecus afarensis could walk on two legs, its skeleton suggests it was still happy swinging among the branches. Amy Middleton reports.
Why we're closer than ever to a timeline for human evolution
Dating when our ancestors split from Neanderthals and other relatives has long been a puzzle, but DNA advances are making our evolutionary journey clearer
Snooze patterns vary across cultures, opening eyes to evolution of sleep
Sleep plays out differently across cultures, but a consistent cycle of z’s and activity appears crucial.
Caesarean Births Could Be Having an Effect on Human Evolution
Caesarean section (or C-section) deliveries can save lives when babies are too large to be born naturally - or if there are other health complications - but they also appear to be affecting how humans are evolving, scientists report.
Chimpanzee 'super strength' and what it might mean in human muscle evolution
Since at least the 1920s, anecdotes and some studies have suggested that chimpanzees are "super strong" compared to humans, implying that their muscle fibers, the cells that make up muscles, are superior to humans.
Foot fossils of human relative illustrate evolutionary 'messiness' of bipedal walking: Study of Homo naledi suggests that new species walked upright and also climbed trees
A new study on Homo naledi, the extinct human relative whose remains were discovered in a South African cave and introduced to the world last month, suggests that although its feet were the most human-like part of its body, H. naledi didn't use them to walk in the same way we do. Analysis of 107 foot bones indicates that H. naledi was well adapted for standing and walking on two feet, but that it also was likely comfortable climbing trees.
These Ancient Teeth Are The First Known Evidence of Right-Handedness
Scientists have discovered the earliest known evidence of right-handedness in the fossil record, thanks to markings on an ancient set of teeth that once belonged to a Tanzanian primate.
The Next Stage of Evolution: How Will the Human Species Evolve?
Here are four possible futures for the human race, based on some theories of continuing evolution. The possibilities include a stop to evolution, continuing mutation here on Earth, technology hijacking evolution, and space colonies introduce differentiation into humans.
