I was following this thread last week and at the time it was bout when do
you know when to draw a line to define species. Here is my question on
this, and it is drawn from the eohippus (let's say horse since I am more
confident in the spelling). Horse started as a little guy thew size of a
cat and over a couple million years grew into a 1,500 pound one.
Q1.) How many species of horse were there?
Q2.) Can we draw the same conclusion about the Human lineage?
