If anyone cares,I did an extensive paper of the extinction of A. Robustus
and A. Bosei while attending UC Berkeley under the direction of Dr. Tim
White, one of the most prominent PaleoAnthropolgists in the world. My
thesis is that was climatic changes, as well as a possible "first stike"
something that weakened the species,that contributed to their extinction.
They were very specialized and possibly could not evolve quickly enough to
adapt to a savannah habitat. However, as was mentioned before, 99% of all
species eventually become extinct. Homo sapiens are not exception. We
are rushing down the path right now!.
